Lock screen weather alert won't go away!

    I really like the always-on lock screen of my Pixel 3s. It shows upcoming calendar items and says what music is playing. It also shows weather alerts, and these take priority - when there's a weather alert, I don't see my calendar events, I don't see my music info. Which completely sucks, because for the storm due tonight the weather alert has been there for two days already! I get it, a storm is coming! Is it really necessary to shut down a useful phone feature for days to get that across?

    Is there some way to shut this off? I tried shutting off lock screen notifications, no help. I tried shutting off emergency notifications, no help. It seems this alert is something else, and it won't go the *@#*@# away.

    What weather app is it? You said that you'd shut off lock screen notifications, wouldn't that shut off everything on your lock screen? In any case, can you simply go the weather apps own notification settings and just turn them off, or at least limit what you'd like to see?

    I am having the same issue with my Pixel 3 XL.

    It's not coming from a third party app, as I uninstalled the one weather app I have with no change. It's also not a standard notification, as I have "no notifications" in the dropdown and I disabled "All Google notifications" in the Google app but the warning is still there. I tried disabling emergency alerts, even though this warning is not listing in alert history.

    I think this is an oversight on Google's side. I would understand this warning being shown if we were in the warning's time window but don't show the warning from the time of issue as this one was issued days in advance.
    Either way, I should be able to dismiss it.

    Mine is alright with me, I just do not trust the app that is glued to my screen, rather do a different url.

    A coworker figured it out. It's the "At a Glance" preferences. You shut off "Weather Alerts" there.

    How are we supposed to know that the lock screen is controlled by "At a Glance" instead of "Lock Screen"? Go figure.
