The app now has two new features.

The first new feature alerts users when heavy rain is expected in or around the area, and when lightning is in and around the area.

The second new feature is the ability to track lightning live on the radar. These tools are great for those who are on the go or who want to get more weather updates in the palm of your hand, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Brett Collar.
