Meteorologist Jason Scott updates US National Forecast, Tropical Forecast, Current SPC Watches and Life Threatening Weather Warnings to my Station.

We wrote some Pal Scripts and assisted in how to Update The MP3 files as needed to Play on my station.. We were able to get this competed and I wanted to share this with anyone else who would like to add Weather Forecasts for FREE in your ON-Air Rotation. Jason updates the files at  http:/www.wxyz-radio.com/weather .

PAL Scripts

Copy and paste the PAL Script you'd like to use into a text file.  Remember to change the .txt to .pal so the script will run correctly.


Current SPC WATCHES - Top and Bottom of the HOUR

// BEGIN MAIN Jason Scott SPC WATCH, WATCH UPDATE & Discussion Play at Approx TOP & BOTTOM of HOUR!
PAL.Loop := True;

// WATCH WILL LOAD AT TOP OF QUEUE AROUND THE TOP OF THE HOUR!
PAL.WaitForTime(T['XX:02:00']);
Queue.AddURL('http://www.wxyz-radio.com/weather/WATCH.mp3',ipTop);

// WATCH WILL LOAD AT TOP OF QUEUE AROUND THE BOTTOM OF THE HOUR!
PAL.WaitForTime(T['XX:29:00']);
Queue.AddURL('http://www.wxyz-radio.com/weather/WATCH.mp3',ipTop);

Life Threatening Warnings Queue every 15 minutes

// BEGIN MAIN Jason Scott WARNINGS will Play every 15 MINUTES OR HOW YOU SET THE TIMES!
// WARNINGS WILL BE TURNED OFF WHEN NO WARNINGS ARE BEING DISCUSSED
PAL.Loop := True;

// WEATHER WARNINGS WILL NOT BE ALL WARNINGS IN THE COUNTRY, JUST SPECIFIC DANGEROUS WARNINGS SELECTED BY JASON!

// SELECT HOW YOU WANT TO AIR WARNINGS BY REMOVING OR ADDING THE //

//PAL.WaitForTime(T['XX:20:00']);
//PAL.WaitForPlayCount(3);

PAL.WaitForTime('+00:15:00');
Queue.AddURL('http://www.wxyz-radio.com/weather/WARNING.mp3',ipTop);

National and Travel - 20 Past The Hour

// BEGIN MAIN Jason Scott National & US Travel Play at Approx 20 Minutes Past The Hour

PAL.Loop := True;

PAL.WaitForTime(T['XX:20:00']);
Queue.AddURL('http://www.wxyz-radio.com/weather/NATIONAL.mp3',ipTop);

PAL.WaitForTime(T['XX:20:00']);
Queue.AddURL('http://www.wxyz-radio.com/weather/USTRAVEL.mp3',ipTop);


Tropical Forecast - 40 past the Hour

// BEGIN MAIN Jason Scott Tropical Play at Approx 40 Minutes Past The Hour
PAL.Loop := True;

PAL.WaitForTime(T['XX:38:00']);
Queue.AddURL('http://www.wxyz-radio.com/weather/TROPICAL.mp3',ipTop);

Whoa -- that's pretty cool, SunnyFlorida. I might test that out. I'm from Florida originally and know how important weather watches & warnings are, but since moving to GA this past January even moreso!

I didn't know they had so many tornado watches & warnings here! And let's not mention snow jam in January...

You said to save it as a text file. Why wouldn't you save it as a .pal?

Is this still working and valid?  on the site, clicking on the links brings you to a 404 error.

I realize this post is old.  Would be awesome to have this for atleast one of my stations.

Thanks!

If you're clicking on the links within the PAL code above, that's probably why you're getting a 404 error page. Try going to their main page -- the web site URL is still valid. From the links there, you have access to all their different scripts for the the weather reports: http:/www.wxyz-radio.com/weather.

That's too bad. When I posted, I clicked on the link I provided and there was a list of URLs for their PAL scripts. Apparently they took the site down, perhaps because they no longer offered the scripts.
