    Exclamation Alerts not scraping

    For the users of Weather2 in the US, Accuweather has changed the look of their alert page. So alert scraping is not currently working.

    I am working on it and will have a fix soon.

    Thanks.

    This is the knock that scraping always gets. I had noticed that the alerts were having problems but I just ignored them because usually the Alerts don't have any really useful information in them, at least for the mild weather we have in Southern California. I imagine those living in Tornado Country have a different view about their usefullness.

    I hope this is the only information you retrieve for the Weather2 plug-in by scraping.

    Thanks again, for this great plug-in.

    Yes, the alert information is the only thing I get by scraping.

    The map images are all URLs, but those can be easily changed if they were to change the URLs from what they currently are.
