MADISON (WKOW) --- If you subscribe to any of our WKOW text messaging services, you need to know that those messages will stop on April 29th, 2016. We want to thank you for signing up. We also want you to know how you can get a lot of the same, great information from our other digital products.
The 27 StormTack Weather App is a great source for severe weather alerts and school closings information. New this spring, the first home screen of the app will feature a headline indicating that school closings are available when any are active. When severe weather is active, the app will automatically let you know with another headline.
You can then track the storm using the interactive tools in the weather app. You can also choose to enable voice alerts for severe weather. You will hear Chief Meteorologist Bob Lindmeier's voice tell you when severe weather is active in your area. And you can watch live streaming video of special weather coverage, in addition to our live streaming newscasts. Click here to download the weather app for iOS and Android devices.
The 27 News Now News App also features severe weather information, school closings and live streaming video. It's a great way to watch our live severe weather coverage and live newscasts when you're away from your television. We'll also send you push alerts for breaking news. Click here to download the news app for iOS and Android devices.
And you can sign up for our 27 Storm Track Weather Email Services, either severe weather alerts, daily forecasts or both. Click here to sign up on here on our weather page.
Of course you can count on the 27 News team for breaking news and severe weather coverage on our website and on television.
Prior to April 30th, you can text the word STOP to our short code at any time to stop our text messaging services. At any time, you may delete any messages you received from us from your mobile device. Again our text messaging services (SMS) will end on April 30th. Thanks again for using WKOW text messaging.
