With all the weather applications you will have the current weather view with the option of checking the forecasts for the coming weeks and, depending on the app, until the next 14 days.

Extreme temperatures with The Weather Channel

Heat Wave 1

This weather app is very complete, it offers a nice interface, the data is highly reliable and includes all key features without paying extra (in exchange for ads; which can be removed). Also what we are looking for, the extreme temperature alert.

Once The Weather Channel is installed, and the permissions are configured (you need to give it the permanent location), it’s time to adjust the alert:

  • Access the configuration, in the three menu points (top right).
  • Select “Alerts.”
  • Go to the “Manage” tab and go to “Significant Weather Forecasts”.
  • Set the selector to “Yes” and select “Very hot.” You will already have active the warning before the arrival of heat waves.
  • We recommend that you also activate the alerts “Changes are coming” and “Alerts issued by the government”.

You can choose other alerts if you prefer, you can also choose to have a permanent notification with the current weather. In our opinion, with receiving extreme change notices It is more than enough.
