MIKE MOSS SAYS: Ron, What you noticed was a bug in the software that we use to automatically color-code watches and warnings by county that was not properly interpreting some of the National Weather Service codes issued for a few counties in southwestern NC. The company that makes mapping and display software finally tracked down the issue and wrote a fix in the past few weeks and we have implemented the update in our on-air and web graphics systems. If you notice the problem again, please let us know, but I think that future "statewide" watches and warnings will display properly now.
