Comcast Weather Channel - no longer forecasts for our area?
So I turn on TWC, and wait for our local on the eights, and now instead of being the forecast for Port Murray that I always see, it's a national, region-by-region overview. Anyone else notice this or know what is going on?
I have the wether cahnnel on my computer and can dial in on Hackettstown immediately. Its alot easier then waiting for it on TV.
Did you try Channel 33? I have noticed that the HD channel doesn't have our local weather, but Channel 33 does.
815 is HD and does not show local. It sort of scans the country. The others do show local.
It must the HD Channel I was watching. 33 and 101 here I come.
You guys know the answers to EVERYTHING!
weather.gov plug in your zip code and get the weather for your area, not Newark, or some other place. Without the hype of accuweather or inaccuracy of TWC. Wanna know how much a little difference in location makes? It was a half degree BELOW zero at my house down in the valley at 7:30 this morning. I think everywhere else was in the teens.
The Weather Channel is a National channel. NOT a Comcast channel The HD (815, 237) is the same as the regular (33) just HD picture quality. Channel 101 is Weatherscan
I am confused. Is the weather on comcast national or local and is national weather comcast and is weatherscan weather.com weather channel whether or not I am watching?
Does partly cloudy mean that "that part up above your head will be totally cloudy?
Why is there air?
Has football started yet?
There is also an interesting on-line site: http://www.wunderground.com.
Interesting thing about this site is that you can select conditions and forecast for Hackettstown and then view the reports from a number of personal and official weather stations scattered around the area. My backyard station reports as Independence Township (KNJINDEP2). Under the banner "Hackettstown Weather at a Glance" there is a Station Select button. You can look at different stations and see the variations, such as temperature vs elevation. There is a table of current reports from all area stations at the bottom of the page.
Richard, nice to meet you my fellow weather nut! My station at wunderground.com is KNJWASHI3. Just enter Califon, NJ into the local weather search window (or zip code 07830) and my station should pop up. I just checked out your station, but you have nothing listed under 'station hardware'. What type of station is yours?
The comcast guy just told me that if you have cable, you will get a local forcast for the nearest town that the comcast or cable office is located (for Hackettstown that would be Port Murray which is the location of the comcast office) If you have Dish, then you will receive the generic or National feed direct from the weather channel. Same with Channel 101, you will only receive this info from the cable company, not on dish.
All I know is when I found the 101 channel, I was like, "Where has THIS been all my life?" Especially in the Summertime when we have very severe lines of storms blasting through. It would always pi$$ me off to no end, when all I needed to know was if I should be concerned that a tornado was rumbling through and had to wait until stupid freakin' Storm Stories was over.
TWO people with backyard weather stations!? Holy cow. We are well served in our area. Cool.
If you go to Wunderground.com, you can see there are about a dozen of us that publish our data online in the immediate area. I have rapidfire updates, meaning the data updates approximately every 2.5 seconds. You can actually see the wind changing speeds and/or direction nearly in real time.
When only the best will do Richard! I have the Davis Vantage Pro2. You can update your wunderground user profile to reflect your hardware. Lets other weather trackers know you have high quality accurate equipment, not some cheap junk!
I am also having this problem in Morgantown WV. Despite being on chat with comcast they would NOT tell me the truth. I suspect that Comcast has cut ties with the local weather version of the Weather Channel so they can pay for the GE share of NBC television.
The HD version of the weather channel is working but no local forecast. Not the best way to treat your customers!
Q: Where is my "Local On The 8s" forecast on The Weather Channel HD?
A: The technology to produce a detailed Local On The 8s in High Definition is currently in development. In the interim, please watch your Local on the 8s on The Weather Channel standard definition channel.
Who do I get hold of about weather channels to complain in flint,mi 33 is the same as 293 wjrt abc stinks
