    • The following awareness-types are supported:
      "00" : "1; wind"
      "01" : "10; rain";
      "02": "2; snow-ice"
      "03" : "3; thunderstorm"

      "12" : "12; flooding"
      "16" : "5; high-temperature"
      "17" : "6; low-temperature"

As MeteoAlarmCap could generate multiple CAP files per forecast, 'exportFileName' create a folder that includes all exported CAP files. 'exportFileName' should be different for each export (e.g. each RWSoS system).

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<timeSeriesExportRun xmlns="" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation="">
			<string key="area-code" value="OV" ></string>
			<timeSeriesType>external historical</timeSeriesType>
			<timeStep unit="minute" multiplier="15"/>
			<readWriteMode>read complete forecast</readWriteMode>

The following code shows a sample output file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<alert xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:emergency:cap:1.2">
        <senderName>KNMI Koninklijk Nederlands Meteorologisch Instituut</senderName>
        <headline>Flooding - Geen waarschuwingen voor Overijssel - Nederland</headline>
            <value>12; flooding</value>
            <value>1; green; Minor</value>
