Skip to comments.WEATHER NATION on Direct TV Has Local Forecasts Now
Posted on 02/10/2014 3:37:53 PM PST by Maudeen
During an earlier thread today many were dissatisfied with the Weather Nation because it didn't have local weather. I was able to type in my zip code a few minutes ago and there it was. In another thread I expressed my viewpoint that the Weather Channel had so much non-weather related programming and often to the left of left. I'm willing to give this channel a chance since all I want is weather. . . "pure and simple".
PS to post
It says on my TV that local radar is coming soon to Weather Nation.
Thanks for the heads up!!
BTW, not to beat up on anyone, but do some of the on-air WeatherNation people seem a little, well, not-ready-for-print-time? Or maybe they're just being folksy (not that I could what they do....).
My KB hates me.....
I will take Weather Nation any day. I just want the forecast and the radar, I don’t need global warming propaganda 24/7. Hope DirecTV keeps them and tells The Weather Channel to go play in the highway.
I have Direct TV.
TWC, AKA the global warming channel, is not missed at my house.
You might be right; however, I’d rather have the folksy than the SLICK if you know what I mean. I just like having the weather be weather so I’ll keep on watching.

Longer range forecasts (of course the forecasts that are months ahead are more iffy).
East coasters look at the “8-14 days” temp map: better days are coming soon!
Thanks for the info. I’m not a weather junkie. . .but I don’t like a lot of fluff and puff during the forecasting.
TWC has even cut back on the “local on the 8s” broadcasts. The only reason to watch a ‘weather channel’LOL!
You mean THE Weather Channel is no longer on Directv?????
Who would ever have known?
This new Weather Nation is like the old, pre-globull warming TWC, only better!
I hope TWC is never back.
Comcast...where ideology trumps profits....
For some reason when I hit the red button for the local information it comes on more quickly than when on the Weather Channel. Maybe someone changed a battery in my remote but I definitely see a difference.
“I will take Weather Nation any day. I just want the forecast and the radar, I dont need global warming propaganda 24/7”
I think it a bit odd to name winter storms. Mix, Max, Hercules.... STRANGE! Winter happens. One snowflake is the same to me (even if they are different)
There must be some kind of government relief money for named storms.
Actually the storm naming is done by the Weather Channel.
It is part of their ideological push to promote “climate change”.
And it is working. I’ve seen internet posts by idiot youts saying things like “they had to start naming these winter storms because they’re so much worse than years ago”.
“Actually the storm naming is done by the Weather Channel.”
I am watching the Weather Channel. I turn on the TV to get the weather and some joker is mining for gold, then another is driving a truck through the tundra, and still another is a rehash of past storm and what if storms PLUS a global warming lecture.
JUST GIVE ME THE CURRENT WEATHER & FORECAST
Comcast: where ideology trumps profits
Weather Nation is great, the way TWC used to be. You can now customize your local area and favorite cities forecasts.. Best part...it’s all weather, no Global Warming BS.
Comcast may find out their “baby” isn’t as cute as they thought....
“Comcast: where ideology trumps profits”
All that is lacking is Michelle O with a weather rock.
For those Freepers who wonder, “What is a weather rock?”
If the rock is wet, it’s raining.
If the rock is swinging, the wind is blowing.
If the rock casts a shadow, the sun is shining.
If the rock does not cast a shadow and is not wet, the sky is cloudy.
If the rock is not visible, it is foggy.
If the rock is white, it is snowing.
If the rock is coated with ice, there is a frost.
If the ice is thick, it’s a heavy frost.
If the rock is bouncing, there is an earthquake.
If the rock is under water, there is a flood.
If the rock is warm, it is sunny.
If the rock is missing, there was a tornado.
If the rock is wet and swinging violently, there is a hurricane.
If the rock has white splats on it, watch out for birds.
I install DirecTV. Yes. Part time cable guy!
