Question Regarding WeatherSTAR XLs and...
« on: August 31, 2007, 09:48:02 PM »
...special weather statements/significant weather alerts. (Which, with NWS coding, are one in the same)

How long do Special Weather Statements run on the XL? On IntelliSTAR, I believe it runs for 10 minutes, and then cuts off. Honestly, it should run longer, especially with Significant Weather Alerts. (Usually issued when a storm is just below severe levels, yet could still do damage)

Thanks,
Matt

For those interested...my username is derived from Tropical Storm Ernesto's Storm Alert fame. As most know, this was a ridiculous move by The Weather Channel, considering Ernesto was quite weak. The name is intended to be taken in a sarcastic tone.

Special Weather Statements ran for 10 minutes on the XL as well. All crawls did on both STARs, except for red crawl warning, which run until the warning expired, or in the case of a Flash Flood Warning, which run for longer than 10 hours, but not for the extended hours it would last for.
