Hi Kevin, yes that is possible. You need to add a HTTP XML/REST Value Sensor to collect the value from the XML File. For the notification you can edit the limits of the Sensor. For example if the warning is defined over a value of 70, the sensor change his state from "OK" to "warning" or "error".

See this link for further information about limits: Sensor Channels Settings

It is possible to define notifications by email, sms, ... depending on different types of triggers. For example if the state is changed or the value reached a defined limit the notification can be triggered.

See this link for further information about notifications: Sensor Notifications Settings
