Get tomorrows forecast texted to you..reminder to put the top on.

Since it is almost top down weather, I figured I would share this tidbit with everyone.

www.ifttt.com

You can set this site to check the weather forecast for rain and text you if a reminder to put the top back on.

Widen your blinders OrangeJeepGuy, there is a whole new world on WF outside of the JK section! Methinks this should have probably gone in the "General Discussion" sub-forum for all Jeepers.

Cool site but it only gives you a daily update which is only good if you left the top off overnight. It doesn't give you an up to the minute update that would be helpful to let you know it's going to rain all of a sudden.

I use a app called Rain Alarm Pro. It gets local dopler radar and depending on the settings you choose it will sound an alarm when precipitation gets close.

You can also set it to text you when the weather status changes to rain, snow, etc...

haha I just run the Weatherbug Elite app on my phone and tablet. If I'm at the office, I keep the interative map open so I can see the rain coming before it gets here.
Weather for Google Android Smartphones - WeatherBug Elite

I do like the SMS thingy though. Pretty interesting.

I just check any weather site and use the hourly function with rain % chance. Put the top and doors back on earlier to be set for tomorrow.
