The 3 weather-warnings for the April release are more or less finished. They are tested at the demo site
For Europe the Meteoalarm.eu page is scraped as there is still no complete RSS-type feed.
For Canada the Environment Canada city forecast is used as it includes the warnings and we can reuse the forecast data later.
For the US the complete set of Curly scripts is used AS-IS. No modifications needed. Just install and configure if you are not already using those scripts.

The small alert-box on the right of the HWS-Template will turn to the color of the warning and either display a small warning text or "multiple warnings active".  Plus a link to the detail page.

I really like the w34 template and aside from weather statements/watches/warnings being highlighted on the page with a link to the actual text, I can't think of anything missing right now.  I like the small, compact nature of the page with everything visible and updating on the fly.  Simple and elegant and all weather...thanks for your work on this project Wim.

I am not sure if there will many other users wanting this, so i understand if it doesn't make it in, but a weather alert/warning for Australia?

Possible source could be,

A reflection:
Is there at least one website in Australia which uses these scripts as its prime website?

You  yourself have a Saratoga website http://www.micklehamweather.com/ as your prime site.
All visitors arrive there. It has a link with flashing “new” to a weather34 website.
But that link http://www.micklehamweather.com/pws/index.php points to another older version.

I am spending 4+ hours a day to salvage the abandoned scripts for WD users.
Seeing only questions from non-users, I think that if no one wants to use them, I should quit adding new features and code.

If there are no real users in Australia, the answer to another 10-20 hours work is “why”

I have been running my site using the saratoga template for a number of years now and my ultimate plan is to switch to using this template as the primary site (it's a great/simple looking design), however I haven't thought or worked out how I might go about doing this yet.  People who view my website still like some of the features in the current template, so when I do make the switch, I would keep the saratoga template available as a secondary site.  So for now I have left it as is, with only me knowing/viewing the my Weather34 site while I tinker and learn.

My question was more in hope than anything.  Totally understand if there is too much work involved.

Personally I think you are doing a great job with these scripts and I appreciate all the effort you put into this.

Just wondering, what is the advantage of using and old version and not using the new "HWS-template for WD"-version which urgently needs users to  test and report errors?

Without an active user-base any script, so also this version will fail to survive.

The link to the older version has been there for a quite a while (maybe a year or so), so it is not technically 'new'!

To be honest with you I didn't think to update the link to the new WD version (just forgot about it really) - I will look to do this hopefully later tonight.

The Demo site now reflects a Canadian user.  I try to test the new EC alert- and forecast-scripts.
The EC scripts display the original forecast data in French and English only.  All visitors which choose another language, will see the English version.
I did not include the language translation on purpose for now as I can not find the documentation of all texts used. English forecast:
Quote
Tonight
Cloudy. 40 percent chance of flurries early this evening. Clearing near midnight. Wind becoming northwest 20 km/h early this evening. Low minus 31. Wind chill minus 30 in the evening and minus 43 overnight. Risk of frostbite.
Monday
Mainly cloudy. 40 percent chance of flurries in the afternoon. Wind up to 15 km/h. High minus 23. Wind chill minus 43 in the morning and minus 31 in the afternoon. Risk of frostbite. UV index 1 or low.
French version
Quote
Aujourd'hui
Neige intermittente cessant en mi-journée. Nuageux par la suite avec 30 pour cent de probabilité d'averses de neige. Accumulation de 2 cm. Vents jusqu'à 15 km/h. Maximum moins 22. Refroidissement éolien moins 30 le matin et moins 35 en après-midi. Risque d'engelures. Indice UV de 1 ou bas.
Lundi
Généralement nuageux. Quelques averses de neige débutant en mi-journée. Vents jusqu'à 15 km/h. Maximum moins 23. Refroidissement éolien moins 43 le matin et moins 31 en après-midi. Risque d'engelures.
As the texts seem free formatted I will leave it with English and French version for now.  The keywords and short-forecast texts probably are documented  somewhere. Ample time to find them before the official release in April. As always comments are welcome.

Trivial point, but typo in Alert window: "Envirinment Canada" - should read "Environment Canada".
It's meant to be fun. . .

WXSIM is finalized and was tested past 2 weeks.
Australia warnings is on the ToDo list.

Regarding the downward arrow under the temp, is it possible to have that actually report Temp Rate? Yesterday we had a cold front move in and my WD indicated a temp drop of -5.8F/hr, yet the console pic below indicated -1F. What does it actually mean? It always show either +1 or -1F. Thanks.
