    thanks for the info. $20/ month sounds reasonable considering all you get. I don't know much about those other services mentioned but I had a service on my nextel phone last year and it did nothing for me. I knew more, sooner, than the phone told me. As long as accuweather is city/town specific and accurate I think I will try it.

    thanks again

    I have Verizon as a cell phone carrier, and use MyCast.

    It's $2.99 / month, and has 7 day forecasts, along with the forecasts from the National Weather Service.

    It also has real time radar, or up to about 5 minutes before, zeroed in about 15 miles around a location, to about a 50 mile radius, to about a 300 mile radius.

    As far as knowing when the snow is going to start / stop, with the radar on the phone, it's within about 3 minutes. It's a fairly detailed radar screen, with multiple colors for the intensity of the storm.
