Verizon weather line temps unreliable
FROM TODAY'S PRINT EDITIONS:
Sue Baker, in Cockeysville, likes to check temperatures on Verizon’s weather line (410 WE6-1212). She got used to BWI being 10 degrees cooler than downtown Baltimore.
Now, it’s more like 20 degrees, she says. “What has made the difference?”
No idea. Those readings have been unreliable for years. At noon Monday, Verizon reported 35 degrees at BWI (accurate for 6 a.m.), and 53 downtown (as usual, too warm). The NWS reported 48 at the airport, 49 downtown.
Verizon’s looking into it.
