Weather Warnings

I got a weather warning on my computer:

weather-warning

It showed up on my phone as well, at about the same time.

Thoughts:

  1. Weird, never seen that before.
  2. It’s probably good that I know about incoming bad weather. Thanks.
  3. I was in Wisconsin at the time, would it still have given me that warning if I wasn’t? in other words, does it know where I “live” or is it geolocating me?
  4. Did I opt in to this?
  5. Seems a little obtrusive. Are in-OS ads next?
