WSOC-TV Channel 9 Weather App
iOS Universal Weather
Chief Meteorologist Steve Udelson and WSOC-TV Channel 9’s team of certified meteorologists in Severe Weather Center 9 have produced the most accurate local weather technology available, “The WSOC-TV Weather App.”
The 24/7 app is constantly updated with the latest Charlotte area storm and forecast information. The free service even includes live coverage of WSOC-TV Eyewitness News and the Channel 9 meteorologists in Severe Weather Center 9.
By using the app’s built-in interactive radar, you can zoom down to your neighborhood or zoom out to check radar anywhere in the country.
Location based Storm Alerts will signal three tones to direct you to the latest severe weather warnings, and you can watch WSOC-TV Eyewitness News Live on the App.
WSOC-TV’s Weather app also keeps you in touch by using social media, including Facebook, Twitter and interactive uploads of your photos and videos directly from your mobile device.
This Weather app focuses on complete Carolina Weather Coverage.
