Thought I would share this with you.

I wrote a email message to Rory, the person that has developed the SwiftWX Radar.

I explained to Rory the importance of us, in our geographical area, monitoring the humidity levels and the concerns when the level drops low that assists wildland fires in developing quicker and the need for the firefighters to respond in a much faster time than normal.

I made the suggestion if he could program the alerts to include the humidity levels.

I recieved his reply back and that he thought it was a fantastic ideal. That he had just included the humidity on the surface observations and the development of the alert capability would not take that much to implement.

So, look for the capability of setting an alert tone for low humidity levels on the SwiftWX Radar.
