Earth Alerts is a resourceful piece of software that can keep you up-to-date with the current major weather events taking place anywhere in the world. It comes packed with several settings that should be easy to figure out.

Create a list with global and US locations to monitor

It is wrapped in a clean and intuitive interface that does not put too much emphasis on looks. You can get started by specifying your global position in order to view details such as time zone, latitude, longitude and elevation, weather zone, and National Weather Service corresponding office (for US).

US locations can be either enabled or disabled, and it is possible to specify multiple entries whose weather conditions you want to monitor at once.

Examine a wide range of global and local weather details

Earth Alerts provides weather information pertaining to the current conditions and local forecast, satellite images, along with the latest news retrieved from Google News.

Furthermore, you can get a global overview on earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, tropical cyclones, in addition to the severe weather, volcano, fire and landslide status reports in United States, as well as local weather and earthquake details.

Accessibility via the system tray

Earth Alerts gets sent to the taskbar notifications area on close. Hovering the mouse above its icons brings up a small panel with the Internet connection status and last update quality, alerts summary and the most significant event, current weather conditions in the monitored locations, and so on. Therefore, you can keep an eye on the forecast while carrying on with normal activity on the PC. Plus, the app triggers visual and audio alerts when critical events are taking place.

Evaluation and conclusion

The program does not put a strain on machine performance, since it runs on low CPU and RAM. However, it may take a while to download the necessary information. Otherwise, Earth Alerts provides a simple and effective method to monitoring the weather across multiple global positions at once.
