    Does anyone know how to clear the weather alerts that pop up? I'm using the WB widget on my homescreen and it constantly shows the little red alert. Ive looked at the alert but there's no way to clear it. I've tried to disable the alerts feature under the Alert Notifications section in preferences but its still there. I'm using version 2.5.288


    Thanks!!!

    If I recall correctly there is a setting you can get to by pressing menu while weather bug is open and you can disable the alerts. was a rather inadequate app for weather. moved on from that one months ago

    There's a setting for Alert Notification and I unchecked it but its still showing I have an alert. I also went into the location profiles I have set up and disabled alerts there as well. Any other ideas?

    If you still have an alert, I would suggest you clear the alert. From your home screen long tap the top bar and then drag it down. You will see all your alerts. You could either tap on Clear or you can tap on the weather alert to clear that particular one.

    No alerts in the notification bar up top. The only place I see the alert icon is on the wb widget and in app itself. Even once inside the app there's no place I can find to clear the alert.

    The very bottom of the app is a scroll dock-like thing. The alert button is the 2nd to last button on the right.

    Does your app not have this?

    I don't have an alert right now, but I think I went to that button to read the alert and once read, it cleared. I'll pay more attention next time I get an alert and report back exactaly what I did.

    Mine does have the scroll dock with the alert button. I've gone in there and read the alerts. I then went back to the main screen of WB and it shows the alerts have cleared BUT when I look at the widget it still shows the alert icon. I then go back into WB and it still shows the alerts.

    What version are you running?

    Not sure how but it looks like the alert cleared on its own????? I just wish there was a manual way of deleting them or marking them read.

    The Alert may have expired.

    For example, if the Alert was for a storm watch from 3pm - 6pm, after 6pm if there are no additional alerts, the alert turns itself off I believe.

    Yeah, I think that's what happened. I just wish there was a manual way to delete the alerts.
