NBC4 meteorologists and staff will be at eight Central Ohio Kroger locations during the spring season to program weather radios that have been purchased. These events will be featured during NBC4 at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. newscasts.

Another powerful tool is as close as your phone with the free weather app for mobile devices. When severe weather approaches, the WCMH WX app offers an alert icon that the user may click to display the full bulletin with storm warning explanation and locations. In addition to the weather alert feature, the WCMH WX app includes animated Doppler radar, current and hourly conditions, and a 10-day weather forecast. Designed with fully integrated GPS, the app allows for current location awareness as well as ability to set multiple locations.
