changes finally coming to alerts.weather.gov Feb 2024

Some items of note:

Quote
NWS and the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) will
implement a new version of alerts.weather.gov on or about February 14,
2024, at which time, the dissemination by NWS of products formatted with
the Common Alerting Protocol version 1.1 (CAP v1.1) will be terminated as
advertised in Service Change Notice (SCN) 23-57
(https://www.weather.gov/media/notification/pdf_2023_24/scn23-57_termination_cap_v1.1.pdf). As a result, the user interface at
alerts.weather.gov will be updated and will begin using the CAP 1.2
formatted data provided by the NWS Application Programming Interface
(API) at api.weather.gov.

The Atomic Syndication Format (ATOM) formatted data currently served at
alerts.weather.gov will be replaced by the ATOM formatted data available
at the below links:
https://api.weather.gov/alerts.atom
https://api.weather.gov/alerts/active.atom

Quote
In an effort to limit user impact of this upgrade, the updated version is
available for public use at https://preview-alerts.weather.gov. As this site is
a preview site, it is unmonitored and only supported during regular
business hours.

Saw the SCN notices.. I'll make sure that nws-alerts (and related scripts) will have any updates needed.

Also saw that multiple Zones will change on March 5,2024 also, so more updates then.
