Is there a web app that will send me a reminder or alert based on a weather event?

Such as:

  • 24-48 hours before freezing, I could set an alert to remind me to shut off the outside hose

  • 4 hours before rain, remind me to close all the windows in the house

Ideally I'd want to be able to customize the alert based on the weather/forecast trigger that I choose

    How do you expect to be receiving alerts? Email? SMS? Telepathy?

Looks like a perfect use case for ifthisthenthat

Put the internet to work for you by creating tasks that fit this simple structure: if this then that. Think of all the things you could do if you were able to define any task as: when something happens (this) then do something else (that).

Have a look at the list of weather channel triggers.

Weather.com sends me text messages based off of certain conditions. It sends these alerts to SMS on certain carriers and to email. https://registration.weather.com/ursa/alerts/step1
