    I am looking into trying The National Weather Station Inc. for their yearly weather serivce, and was wondering if anyone has experience with this company specifcally. I am not interested if you have used other seervices just this one.

    Yes, my friend used it for 3 yrs but hasn't used it in the last 2 yrs.
    He said it was good info but not worth the price for the carwash.
    He & I both use Intellacast.com for our weather info ;) .
    :waving: Intellacast has everything you could ask for snow,rain wind,clouds,ect. ,but it's only updated every 15 min.

    If you have anything you want me to ask him about just let me know.:waving:

    Thanks for the info. The yearly subscription is only $ 600.00, which is cheap for weather subscription services. If it helps with just a few storms for routing and final plowings, it will worth it.
    Not to mention it will aid with our business the other 8-9 months of the year.

    plowking35 - Does this sevice have any snow depth/coverage charts. Or snow totals kept for a couple of days after a storm?

    Looking for a good weather site, so I can use snow data as part of invoicing documents, etc.

    They will give you whatever you want. Basic service is daily forcasts, weekly 10 day forcast on Friday, and during weather events updates every 6 hours or as warranted by weather changes. These are all faxed and emailed to you. They also have a 24 hr hotline where you can call in and talk to a meteorologist.
    They have site specific maps available for snow totals, I purposly asked that question.
    Their number is 1-877-447-6699 ask for Dan Ventola
