How to get scheduled weather alerts in Android [Tip]

In Android, there are a whole bunch of weather apps and widgets that you can download and install. There’s AccuWeather, Go Weather, Yahoo Weather and so on. The thing is most of these apps do not give you alerts at a specified date or time. So it’s either you check the app manually or take a look at your screen where your weather widget is located.

Now, what if you want to be alerted for the next weather forecast? For example, you can get weather alerts every 6am or 7am so that you’ll know if there’s a chance of rain by 5pm of the same day? If that is the case, then you can try out this new weather app for Android called “Wealert”.
