The county Warnings are wrong in our area, we are in West Plains, Mo (Southern, Mo) and it shows we are in a Freeze Watch when it should be Thunder Storm Warnings. It is stormy and in the 50s currently!  Also is there a way to zoom in more on a certain area? It is very distracting to have to see so much on the Map at one time. There are many counties in a Tan color as well and that is not on the Legend for Warning Types??

Hi Beth,
Thanks for posting.  I've just emailed the developer (support@digichief.com) your thread as a heads up to them.

Cheers,

Hi Beth,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The blue color you are seeing is actually a severe weather statement, not a freeze watch.  There are over 120 different watches, warnings and advisories, so sometimes there are shades that are very much alike. Unfortunately we do not control these. Since there are so many colors, we have to make a decision which ones that are critical to list on the legend, as there would be no space to list all of them. However,  I agree with you 100%, it looks like very much like a freeze watch and I apologize for the confusion.

I will tell you that we are making some changes to the widget, and will  be providing state level maps as well as additional listings on the legend.  I would be happy to discuss and even let you beta test when this is available, hopefully in the next few weeks if you'd like.  BTW, tan is a high wind warning, which we will be adding. Stay safe!

Best Regards,

Gene Hamm

Thank You! A state Map Would be great. We would love to test the updated version. Anytime widgets and gadgets can be more personlized/customized is a good thing for example if we could choose which warnings to show.
