Earlier this year, WeatherBug and Little League® International teamed up to create the Little League® WeatherBug app for Android and iOS devices. The app provides real-time weather, forecasts, severe weather alerts, and personalized lightning detection to help you stay safer from severe weather and lightning during outdoor activities – whether it’s practice and ballgames, or a day of fun at the beach or the lake.
The app features Spark™ lightning detection, which delivers personalized, minute-by-minute and mile-by-mile lightning strike information to help coaches, managers, and fans Know Before™. Spark uses real-time lightning strike information from our Total Lightning Network to provide color-coded warnings for lightning danger at your device’s GPS location and other places – like your favorite cities or the field where the game will be played.
