I wish we could choose our colors or let the colors chosen in the outline placefile be used for the county filled placefile.
I prefer the Outline placefile but it will not "Update" if a watch box is extended in size. This happens often (twice in the last week)..
A Severe Thunderstorm or Tornado Watch is issued and later on they extend the coverage area of the same watch number to include more counties. The Watch box outlines will not update. The county filled will, but I don't like the color schemes it is limited to. I prefer RED for Tornado and Yellow for Thunderstorm.
