Spark delivers minute-by-minute, mile-by-mile lightning strike information so you can stay safer. 

What is Spark? WeatherBug’s Spark gives you real-time readings from the world’s largest and most advanced Total Lightning Network to tell you how close the nearest lightning is to you – whether it’s a few miles away, across the country! See where the closest lightning strike is to you and heed color-coded warnings to avoid danger. Zoom out, and view lightning flashes around the world.

How does it work? By combining real-time lightning data, cloud computing power, and the GPS on your device, Spark delivers lightning strike information for your current city, your saved locations, or on the spot – whether you’re at the beach, ballpark or golf course. We track lightning strikes using our exclusive Total Lightning Network. In fact, the National Weather Service, the United States Air Force Weather Agency, and NASA all use data from our network.
