My Pocket Meteorologist

My Pocket Meteorologist

In 2013, Eastern PA Weather Authority (EPAWA) introduced the premier economical service, My Pocket Meteorologist (MPM).  Ever since its start, everyone from large companies to everyday weather enthusiasts have been benefiting from the convenience of manual, meteorologist produced forecasts sent directly to their phone. In 2016, the My Pocket Meteorologist program became better than ever before! Weather NJ entered into a joint-venture partnership with EPAWA 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 many EPAWA followers have come to trust over the past few years got even stronger with the partnership of WeatherNJ, LLC.
