Arctic blast to arrive end of week,

My Pocket Meteorologist

In 2013, EPAWA introduced the premier economical service, My Pocket Meteorologist (MPM).  Ever since its start, everyone from large companies to everyday weather enthusiasts have been benefitting from the convenience of manual, meteorologist produced forecasts sent directly to their phone. EPAWA entered into a joint-venture partnership with WeatherNJ in 2016 to become the largest and most reliable supplier of text alerts, daily forecast texts, and joint Premium Forum in the NE US and Mid-Atlantic! The same great service that you have come to trust over the past few years got even stronger with the partnership with Jonathan Carr and his associates of WeatherNJ, LLC.

Whether you’re a contractor, landscaper, facility manager, or someone who just doesn’t want to be stuck in the rain, snow, or ice, this service is for YOU! Please see the detailed information about each service below and choose the best one that suits your needs. We look forward to serving you with forecast accuracy, excellence, and dependability!

MPM Service(s) Overview

Your forecast alert will be sent via text directly from an on-staff Meteorologist from Weather NJ and EPAWA. Alerts vary depending on which option you sign up for—“Daily Forecast Service”, or “Weather Alerts Service” (active days only).

Both services offer affordable, low monthly rates starting at just $0.20/day! Discounted semi-annual and annual options are also available!

Winter-only Options

Winter Weather Alert Service

Tailored for those who want early warnings for any significant weather system moving into their specific county during the entirety of the winter season, November 1st, 2021 through March 31st, 2022, or last snowfall. All for a one-time payment of $30.99 for one county monitoring, or $40.99 for two county monitoring. The Winter Weather Alert option provides advanced notice of:

  • Winter Storms – Up to 3 days notice with daily updates thereafter leading up to the storm, and updates with any changes to previous text forecasts as needed during the storm until storm passes
  • Light snow (less than 3″) – Texts are sent 1-2 days before an event with daily updates thereafter leading up to the snowfall, and updates with any changes to previous text forecasts as needed during the storm (in real-time) until storm passes

SPECIAL NOTE: Seasonal text alerts are a subscription-based service. Although it remains a seasonal program from November 1st through March 31st, the subscription will renew automatically the following year at the beginning of the new Winter season, November 1st. There will no longer be a need to sign up individually for the service(s) every year as long as the payment source on file is current, and prior notification to cancel was not given prior to the renewal date. This applies to existing customers only, carried over from the previous season.
