Richard:

 

I’m looking for the RSS feed for the daily Hazardous Weather Outlook, issued by the National Weather Service office in Grand Rapids, MI.

 

The link for the text version is:

 

https://forecast.weather.gov/showsigwx.php?warnzone=MIZ057&warncounty=MIC081&firewxzone=MIZ057&local_place1=Grand%20Rapids%20MI&product1=Hazardous+Weather+Outlook&lat=42.9634&lon=-85.6681#.YMeSMPlKhPY

 

but I don’t think that’s going to give me the RSS feed I need.

 

May have to ask the folks at the Weather Service Office itself.

What town/area are you wanting the feed for?

You probably said that early on….

Darren:

 

Can you tell me how to do this?

 

I can find the link to the text version of the hazardous weather outlook, but I’m not sure that’s the same as the RSS feed URL.

 

What I’m trying to say is that I’m not exactly sure what to look for, and how to find the RSS feed link.

Try bringing up the feed in a browser and copying the address

I understand, Brian.

 

Now, I have to figure out how to get the right RSS Feed URL.

I don't see why those shouldn't work.  Personally, I find that method to be "the long way."  There is an Add item in the context menu for the RSS Feed entry in the Outlook Folder Tree and it pretty much walks you right through adding the feed URL that you have.

This is one of those, "It's not rocket science," sort of things.  More of a "fill in the blank with the correct RSS Feed URL" and hit OK.  (There may be a couple of more steps, but I don't want to fully configure an RSS Feed I don't want.)
