I have setup a new custom Weather Alert and SkyWarn Spotter Activation script through PHP and Twitter for Stark County, Ohio.
This project is currently in Live Beta Testing and I am encouraging anyone to “follow” the account; and if you wish, have them text messaged to your phone.
For now, this script will tweet any time someone views either of my WX-IMG for Stark County, which are currently used on many different websites.
This script will alert under any of the following conditions:
- Flood Warning
- High Wind Warning
- High Wind Watch
- Flood Watch
- Tornado Watch
- Tornado Warning
- Severe Thunderstorm Warning
- Severe Thunderstorm Watch
- Frost Advisory
- Freeze Warning
- Wind Warning
- Wind Advisory
- Wind Chill Advisory
- Blizzard Watch
- Blizzard Warning
- Winter Storm Watch
- Winter Storm Warning
- Winter Weather Advisory
- Any “Special” Advisory
- Spotters are encouraged to report
- Spotter Activation is expected
- Spotters have been activated
- Spotter Activation may be needed
- Spotter Activation will likely be needed
- Spotter activation is possible on “day”
“Day” meaning one of: Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday.
I plan on setting it up to check for Weather Alerts every 15 minutes and Spotter Activation every 7 hours, This will help to make it more reliable and help to prevent spam tweets with the same message.
