CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Receiving too many or too few push alerts through the WBTV Weather App?

Meteorologist Eric Thomas is giving a quick breakdown of how you can opt in or out of certain alerts.


The optional push alerts include:

Severe Weather Alerts, which are issued by the U.S. National Weather Service and notify users of when severe weather strikes in their area.

Lightning Alerts, which notify users when lightning strikes within five miles of their location (this can be set up under "Alert Location" to include an address, or detect your current location through GPS).

Precipitation Alerts notify users when heavy rain falls within five miles of the users' location.

WBTV Alerts are weather updates sent by WBTV meteorologists that include a video and short synopsis of what to expect weather-wise.

All alerts can be turned on or off under the Settings tab, located under the three horizontal bar drop-down in the left-hand corner of the app.

The app offers other great features, including a live doppler radar!
