It is not a warning - it is a NOAA weather forecast. If it is interesting to you here is a URL that will provide a lot more about NAVYEX Wx. NAVTEX Product Listing
Also there is a lot more on NAVTEX than Wx. Before you spend money to solve the problem you describe in your initial post, be sure to thoroughly research NAVTEX.
