A desktop alert for severe weather warnings and breaking news (See all)
BIA Information Network

SkyWatch13 Weather brings breaking news of hurricanes, tornados, and wind spread fires to communities in Kansas on WIBW 13's Channel online but you can be alerted instantly about severe weather conditions by signing up and downloading the SkyWatch13 Desktop Alert, which will provide you with access to Local and National radar and late breaking news alerts from the WIBN Newsroom.

SkyWatch13 will sit unobtrusively in your taskbar displaying the current temperature and conditions and features County specific weather warnings. When a weather warning is sent to your desktop, you will be alerted by the program first by an audible sound to catch your attention, followed by a newsroom style text crawl displaying for you any breaking warnings or news. Thanks to the current warning systems, fatalities in the US from tornados has more than halved, and this small and compact application could help to reduce these figures even more. You can change the location your alert is set to by simply selecting the Target icon on your SkyWatch13 desktop alert interface, just beneath the X. This option is useful if you're planning any travel.
