Dial-A-Forecast recorded weather forecasts from NWS
« on: March 04, 2018, 01:40:53 PM »
Am I the only one who still uses the Dial-A-Forecast recorded weather forecasts by telephone sometimes? I still think it's useful if I'm near a landline phone but away from my computer or away from a weather radio. :)

Our line still gets 30-40 calls a day, I know there are at least a couple that check it very frequently as we get calls fairly quickly if it stops updating.

Wow! That's kind of nice that it still gets so much use in this day and age. I'm glad people still know it's around. It's always good to have options when it comes to weather forecast sources.

 I lived for the telephone forecast when I was growing up. Aviation had one too. Do all forecast offices still offer this option or just some?

I'm 99% sure they all have it (or at least a majority do) judging by the list of cities that have local numbers you can call into.
