The New Weather Alerter!
The main purpose of Weather Alerts is to bring you desktop alerts of the National Weather Service. This extension will monitor the NOAA NWS feed for you and will notify you of any alerts you would like to see.

As I’m writing this there is a tornado watch in my area. I’ve just installed it and it has alerted me, so it works. I understand that this is in beta, but the extension could use some polishing. Otherwise good extension.
I have an obsession with weather so this keeps me updated for when I have anxiety about it. It shows the correct alerts for when I need it. This is perfect even though it’s in beta.
The constant pop-up of the alerts, instead of just popping up once and inability to silence or keep the alerts from continuously popping up has caused me to remove this extension. Great idea, just need the ability to put the pop-up’s to sleep once cycled through once or some type of control over the frequency of pop-ups or something.
Works too great to me. Keeper.
It works but the alerts will repeat often. A check to ignore identical alerts should be added.
It works, but it continues to alert me every 30 seconds, which is annoying.
Love it, simple to use and set up. This alerts me faster than my local tv news teams. Thank you!
Works great !
The best alert station out there!!!!
Working great. Neat tool.
Feature request: preface the alert with the alert zone it applies for people with multiple and disparate zones setup.
Works great for me – I have my and my family’s zones locked in. Thanks!
great concept; just couldn’t get it to work.
