I've got my home station receiving a full feed of WX alerts (that is, I
have a "t/n" in my filter string) and am receiving tons of WX alerts --- but
none in my local area, even when major news organizations report severe weather
alerts active from NWS.  My guess is that some NWS offices have stopped putting
their alerts out to whatever feeds APRS-IS.

Hope that's wrong and there's another setting I can tweak to start seeing them
