NWS advisories not working... here's the reason

Post by saratogaWX » Wed Jun 15, 2016 4:19 am

The alerts.weather.gov website switched to using HTTPS only on 14-Jun-2016.

This means that three scripts have changed to support the https:// access for the ATOM/CAP advisories.

atom-advisory.php V2.11
atom-top-warning V2.09

are now available for standalone use at http://saratoga-weather.org/scripts-atom.php

Those two, and nws-alerts.php V2.16 are included in the Saratoga template for Base-USA users.

Use the update tool for Base-USA, Plugin-* 14-Jun-2016

p.s. If you haven't updated since mid-May-2016, You should use 23-May-2016 for the query to get the updated get-metar-conditions-inc.php script since the website used by the old script for METAR data is being shut down 15-Jun-2016... you've been cautioned :)
