We're Back - New URL to Bookmark!

With thanks to one of our readers, we have been able to get back online.

We have heard from multiple sources that Weather Underground, which has supported weather radio streaming services like ours for about a decade, is closing down the service officially on March 1, 2017. It has effectively been down already for over a week and there is every indication it will never be back.

We consider this service useful and we have loyal listeners who promptly notify us whenever the stream does go down. We have tried to provide reliable service over the nearly 10 years it has been online and we intend to keep going. For the moment, the feed is up and running again at a new link you should bookmark:

This won't be an elegant solution at the moment but it will work for most browsers. We are still investigating how to update the myriad of apps and other services like Scanner Radio and TuneIn on how to find our new feed. Many of our listeners hear the stream through third-party apps. We will continue to update you with our progress, and thanks for being patient.

Another Extended Outage

All weather radio feeds hosted by Weather Underground, including ours, have been down for the last several days. They are aware of the problem but we do not yet have an ETA on when this will be fixed. This is affecting ALL 160+ weather radio feeds across the country, so it is a very serious outage. We wish we had an easy solution for this issue, but we do not. We can only hope that Weather Underground will continue to be a reliable streaming partner in the future, as they have generally been for the decade we have been providing this service to the public.

Our apologies. We are frustrated as well.
