At last! A new, local phone number for weather
Baltimoreans! Do you miss the old Verizon weather line for checking the weather forecast? Do your fingers still want to dial WE-6 1212 whenever the skies look threatening?
The number was disconnected in June, and since then we've been limited to Verizon's Washington line and the DC forecast, or the BGE/Fox45 number (410 MOB-WACK) and its ads.
Well, you're in luck. The National Weather Service has found a way to hook up a phone line to its NOAA Weather Radio forecast for Baltimore.
And you can call it now, at 410 500-4450. It's a robot, but he sounds like a nice enough guy. And there are no ads.
