good add-on; open up data sources Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I like this add-on. Quite convenient.
An enhancement I would like to see is hovering over the "Severe weather alert" icon to see what type of alert it is (e.g. Flood warning), without having to open a new tab and go to the web page. This may be difficult to do by screen scraping, as the severe weather alert content on Accuweather is not logically formatted.
I agree with "Oscaron" that it would be good to enable different data sources. E.g. http://www.weather.gov/alerts/wwarssget.php?zone=TXZ119
(XML feed of alerts, by "zone".) Or wunderground... their severe weather alert content looks favorable to screen scraping (e.g. flood warning is FLO, high winds are WND).
Maybe if the data-retrieval part is modularized out, different contributors could write those components for the data sources they wanted.
