I keep getting :

and

Alert.length is back to 0


#84

I got one today for air quality.

#85

When the length is greater than zero, are there any nulls? That piston is supposed to send the alert (or null) whenever the length is 1 or more.


Edit:
If you are using this piston from above, then any time the length is greater than zero, there should be extra information inside that SMS. Such as:

temp

So I guess my question is, what is the extra information you see when length is 1 or more?


#86

I am not getting any alert.length other than 0 or 1

#87

Dang. I am beginning to wonder if my location is bugged then. So far, in 30 days of testing on my end, my length has changed many times, yet not a single alert has come in. Either I am living in paradise, or something is fishy… (to be honest, the weather hasn’t really been worthy of an alert… I’m just wondering about all the nulls I have been seeing)


#88

Is there anything more that I can do to help?


#89

If you are willing to let that piston run a bit longer… I am especially interested if any nulls ever appear when length is 1 or more


#90

Can do.


#91

The Wiki has been updated.

Thanks everyone for the latest contributions!


#92

Good news! We finally have enough data gathered for $twcweather.alerts.significance to make sense of that dataPoint.

The new table can be found here


#93

Amazing @WCmore. Simply amazing


#94

Thanks @Koyfam. I appreciate that. Although, I couldn’t have done it without your help…
(I have not had a single alert since I started tracking a month ago)


#95

@WCmore, great work! Others here will surely benefit. Thanks.


#96

Hello!

Here are my gatherings from this past week:

$twcweather.alerts[0].eventDescription
“Severe Thunderstorm Watch”
“Special Weather Statement”
“Beach Hazard Statement”

$twcweather.alerts[0].headlineText
“Severe Thunderstorm Watch from SUN 3:25 PM EDT until SUN 10:00 PM EDT”
“Special Weather Statement until SUN 11:15 PM EDT”
“Beach Hazard Statement from SAT 10:00 AM EDT until SAT 10:00 PM EDT”

I decided to keep the [0], as I am also capturing the [1] separately. Do you want me to report them without the [0]?

Thanks!


#97

Thanks @dejavux2! I have added “Beach Hazard Statement” to the Wiki.
(the other dataPoints were already listed)


I am not sure it matters really. I believe [0] is the first alert, and [1] is the second alert for the same time period. The important thing is for us to gather data that is not listed on the Wiki.


For what it’s worth, I believe we can never have too much data, LOL.
(notice all the question marks next to the Beach Hazard)

This can be prevented in the future if there was a testing piston capturing all of $twcweather.alerts. It lets us see the relationship between dataPoints. (but again, I am grateful for any contributions)

Pro Tip:
If you don’t want the testing piston to send a SMS, you can delete that single line. The dataPoints will still be stored in the log. It makes for an easy copy/paste to this thread.

Does this help?

Beach Hazard Statement until SUN 3:00 AM EDT


#99

Yes, very much… Thank you!

Your data has been added to the Wiki.


Edit:
I am definitely seeing even more patterns.
For example, “productIdentifier:CFW” appears with any of the following alerts:

  • Beach Hazard Statement
  • Coastal Flood Statement
  • Rip Tide Statement

#100

Good…glad to help.

I live near Lake Erie, so we get a lot of alerts like those.

i hope this one helps, Tropical Storm Watch.
