Description Luke-Jr 2016-10-07 00:15:23 UTC
The weather applet merely gives a rainy icon when there is a severe weather condition even to the extreme of a state of emergency being declared. This is using NOAA as a weather source, which itself has detailed information on this condition. It seems like the applet ought to at least alert of conditions vaguely.

Reproducible: Always

dataengines/weather: Implement Warnings for NOAA provider

The NOAA service issues alerts for the US region, via the CAPv1.2
JSON API: https://www.weather.gov/documentation/services-web-api

The alerts are filtered by county because it includes all the events.
Using the forecast zone would miss some of them, and the lat/lon point
corresponds to the weather station, not necessarily the user location.
