• Hi, I have just set my alert. I would really appreciate if there could be also an alert for higher Cape index.
    That would also be great if the alert could be set for any location where I currently am.

    Imagine the situation: You go to the trip, or you take a longer walk with a baby, the sun is shining but soon would come the storm or a havy rain. It would be great to be warned in advance.

    Alerts for CAPE index may be useful as a warning of thunderstorm possibility. It can tell you that thunderstorm may occur somewhere in the wider area.
    However, it is not really precise, it is not sufficient for immediate and reliable thunderstorm warning.
    In such cases (like the one you have described) you should use radar.
