Weather Alerts
« on: March 01, 2017, 02:46:11 PM »
Hello All,
  I am using WxMesg to distribute all our local weather alerts to people via cell, email, and twitter. However, during severe events, we get swamped with SPS (special weather statements) which seemed to reiterate what came before.

I am curious what alerts are most important to people and what you send how as only necessary..

Hi Jim
We have a locally weather service here in Switzerland too and end up with the same result.

We was interested to get alerts on 'self-defined events' such as precipitation, temperature and wind gusts. This is why we wrote our own PHP script. Now we have 2 scripts. One scripts for Davis Weather Stations with Weatherlink IP Datalogger, and another for all other PWS at Wunderground. Both scripts send only 1 email per day, if a weather event applies.

Best regards
