A wind alert is a way to notify yourself when observed and/or forecast winds meet specified conditions. There are three methods by which you can receive wind alerts: email, text message, or mobile push notification. To add one of these methods, see: Configuring Alert Devices
Membership is required for alert setup. We feel that all members are entitled to wind alerts! While free members are limited to 30 alerts per month, paid memberships can receive unlimited alerts.
