How to get Rain or Snow Alert on Android or iPhone

You won’t be stuck in rain or snow anymore. Your smartphone is able to alert you one day in advance if there has any rain or snow forecast. This will give enough time to plan and prepare for yourself and your kids. Especially if you are depending on public transportation, this feature is a must have with your smartphone.

Unfortunately, there is no inbuilt feature in your smartphone to serve this purpose. But you can make this using the free automation tool IFTTT. The good thing about this tool is it is simple, easy and free.

If you are an Android or iOS user, you have to install free apps from Google Play or iTunes. Once you download, please create an IFTTT account from your phone with your email. Once you create the account and log in, you are ready to go to setup alert on your smartphone.
