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. On October 1st, 2016, the My Pocket Meteorologist program became better than ever before! EPAWA entered into a joint-venture partnership with WeatherNJ 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!

A breakdown of the counties that we cover are shown below in RED, and as of 11/2/2016, the counties in BLUE we also cover:
