    Phil from Gunter what does this have to do with this story, if you are having problems with your weather panel take it up with 12 news

    Why is it that my weather panel is out of date on First alert? When I click on the weather tab, it goes to the 3 day forecast, which seems t be stuck on November 14th. If I click on the 7 day view, it is correct.

    I bet it was the Police Department's fault.
