    Trust me. WC alerts. Almost too many. Changed settings to only get moderate and severe and still got every heat warning while I was in Charleston these last few days. I kept saying "well duh" LOL.

    Not really what you're asking for but I use www.wunderground.com they said me email weather alerts, full html they look nice and also daily forecasts in the AM. No extra background app running, and wunderground is quite good. They have a nice mobile site too, i.wund.com

    If you are asking about Weatherbug, yes, the alert icon goes away after you read it (or clear the notifications).

    Which settings are you trying to change?

    I really wish radarscope would come to android already. I love it on my touch and ipad. Best radar app with live alerts.

    Weatherbug for android is free and has alerts for severe weather. You can even have it send you text messages of severe weather alerts. Super app with lots of features for free

    Go to the market and search: The Weather Channel. It shows weather warnings and watches in the notification bar. You can also get then Nowcast, Hourly, 36 Hour, 10 Day, and a really cool future weather radar map that pinpoints your location.:D

    If you just want severe weather alerts you can also go to weather.com & sign up for text alerts for severe weather. They send you a free text message.

    All of the above are great weather apps. A big factor for me is how local the report is. Living in a small town in Iowa, I like WeatherBug Elite. One, because of the temp icon in the notification bar. Two, because it provides plenty of info and weather alerts (which can be updated as often as every 15 minutes.) And, three (and most important to me,) because the WB station is at our local school so the weather info is as local and accurate as it can get.

    15 Min for alerts it terrible by that time a tornado has already chewed your house apart and is in the next town TorWarn can get you updates as fast as 5 seconds after they are issued potentially saving your life and giving you the most lead time possible to get to shelter.
