The products available are identical to ones available on our standard internet site however they are formatted for use with mobile devices. In order to access the wireless version of our site, you will need a mobile device equipped with either a hypertext transfer protocol overview (HTTP) or wireless applications protocol (WAP) browser and a wireless internet service provider.
You can use either of the following URL's to access your complete weather forecast:

Once you enter your "City, St" or zip code, you will receive your current weather information and links to the following...
- Forecast-at-a-Glance - a quick word or two describing the weather and a forecast temperature for the next 36 hours.
- Detailed forecast - The complete forecast text issued by the local NWS weather office for the next seven days.
- Doppler Radar Image - This is the same image available you are used to seeing from our website, just transformed into the best possible image that your wireless device can display.2

work in progress. Your feedback about this new service will be very
helpful. Please send any comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
