Your Bookmarks Will Need To Change Too!

The National Weather Service’s primary web site www.weather.gov plans to implement an upgrade. The improvement will involve the point ‘n click site specific forecasts and zone forecasts.

Links to a specific forecast page will display an error message that includes a URL to the new web site location. That is your opportunity to update your bookmarks to provide access to NWS forecasts quickly after the upgrade.

· Addition of 7-day hourly forecast information to the point forecast page

· A new mobile-friendly landing and graphical/tabular forecast page

Want Older Posts - or a Different Topic?

The above section lists a subset of all our blogs. Initially it is just the most recent ~20-25 blogs, but if you use widgets in the right column to specify a particular author, topic, starting date or other filtering criteria, the above display (and that on the home page) may reflect your choices.

If you just want older blogs, specify a different  starting date. If you want really old (circa 2005-2010) stories, see our archives from our previous site.
