I think you will find it is Weatherbug. I too have seen this happen, and if I went into the weatherbug application there was an alert that had gone out for a thunderstorm watch. A couple of ways you can tell in weatherbug is the weatherbug direct icon will turn red which is quite obvious, usually happens for a severe alert. But for lesser alerts (air quality alert for example) only the temperature will have turned red, not the entire icon.
