    Hello, I currently use Weatherbug as my weather provider on the PC but I am seeking other solutions... but my question today is this. I have came across this website: http://www.weather.gov/inlr.php and I am concerned by what it says that it means there will be no more capability of companies like Weatherbug or The Weather Channel's program "Desktop Weather" to recieve severe weather alerts from the National Weather Service.

    Can anyone tell me if this is what that webpage means or if it means just for the forecasts?

    Thanks a lot.

    Gracie

    They are referring to the Interactive Weather Information Network page. Link

    The info will still be available to the public.

    Hi Ron, thanks for letting me know and replying. Its very very appreciated. So this means that the weather info that is retrieved from the National Weather Service servers to Weatherbug for example will still be OK and no interference?
