PrecipAlert provides daily emails that recap the last day’s total rainfall.
The PrecipAlert daily email report delivers the last 24 hours of accumulated rainfall for each of your locations.
Daily emails are sent twice a day providing you with an overnight (sent at 6 am central) and daily recap (sent at 6 pm central) of each location’s rainfall.
The rainfall data is archived automatically for each location allowing you to create project or location summary reports of all rainfall detected throughout the duration of a project.

Easily add your locations using the Google Maps interface. Upon entering your address, zip code, or even your latitude and longitude, you can pinpoint your precise location. Enter your descriptive location or project name to track both rainfall events as well as forecast rainfall for that area.
PrecipAlert allows you to configure alerts for both hourly and daily time frames as well as setting the desired threshold to be reached before sending an alert. Alerts can be set for both accumulated rainfall as well as forecast rainfall for your selected location.
Alerts are easily activated and deactivated by simply checking the box of the desired alert. Alerts can be sent to multiple recipients either via email or text messages. It’s that easy!
The PrecipAlert service provides rainfall data for the continental United States (CONUS) based upon information generated by the National Weather Service’s (NWS) 144 Nexrad radar stations. The radar estimated rainfall is collected continuously and then compiled once an hour to calculate the total hourly rainfall. The rainfall totals then incorporate “ground-truthing” using a multi-sensor (radar+gauges) precipitation analysis which refines the radar-derived rainfall data using rain gauge measurements from thousands of locations. The resulting rainfall data represent an accurate accounting of rainfall down to a 4-kilometer area (~2.5 x 2.5 miles).
The PrecipAlert service also provides area forecast rainfall amounts based upon model data generated in various cycles daily by the National Weather Service. PrecipAlert utilizes this data (the same data used by NWS forecasters) to capture forecasted rainfall amounts down to the GIS level. By monitoring this information for each of your designated locations, PrecipAlert notifies you when the selected thresholds which you determine are reached.
Creating your locations and establishing your alerts is as easy as dropping a pin on a map and selecting your monitor settings. Get started today!
