There was a small craft weather advisory for the Greater Washington D.C. area recently, which I know because my weather app duly notifies me of all weather alerts in the region. There was also one the day before, and the day before that, too. In fact, by my count there have been such advisories on 25 of the last 30 days.

There was also a tornado warning yesterday, which I learned via the darkening skies and a neighbor on the street rather than my weather app, low-tech alternatives that might be considered quaint if they did not concern a matter of life and death.
