I know the UK Met Office has RSS feed for warnings. Perhaps other national Met services do too. Should be relatively easy to change the script to handle RSS feeds for those Met services that supply them.
yeah its probably a better option

I've been looking at the news and did find that they're offering RSS and ATOM feeds via https://feeds.meteoalarm.org/ so I'm looking to modify the get-METEOALARM-warning.php script to use the feed instead of scraping HTML. One other change in the feeds is they're no longer posting a 'Green' (all's well) entry.. just the absence of an alert is indicative of 'Green'. They call these feeds 'legacy', but they're associated with the Meteoalarm V2.0 release.

Their new https://meteoalarm.org/ site looks pretty, but is glacially slow in loading due to one XML fetch for the JSON of all active warnings (Bleah!). I've not found a way to subset the request to a single country, but will continue looking at that option too.

indeed looking at the "Great Britain and Northern Ireland - there is no reporting at all of "Northern Ireland" Alerts in either Legacy atom or legacy rss feeds.

at least the UK Met office has not yet pulled the plug.

I feel like putting a bounty up.. :lol:

If there is something that can be done, I'd participate in a donation. I've had some emails over the past 3 or 4 weeks asking why I didn't show warnings anymore. I had no explanation at the time.

It shows that people do indeed take notice of them, even if they're on a small independent weather station site.

I'm using this site for now. https://www.willyweather.co.uk/info/widget/warning.html it feed direct from met office.

you just get a popup via a script. I'm only running this from the main page and not all pages.

I'm sure something could be done to feed from the Met office RSS feed, though guess this maybe complex.

https://meteoalarm.org appears to be still in test phase:
Test Version of the new Meteoalarm system. No responsibility is taken for the correctness and completeness of the displayed information.

Please use https://meteoalarm.eu for the official warning information of EUMETNET Meteoalarm.
I hope they speed up that site somewhat. its as slow as hell!
