On September 23, 2005, NWS made a decision (based on public feedback) not to replace its listings of Commercial Weather Providers Serving the US and Commercial Weather Vendor Web Sites Serving the US by pointing only to non-NWS listings. This decision was based on public comments on the proposed termination of the NWS listing service (for more information, click here).
We have redesigned our web site to provide both NWS and Non-NWS listings.
accompanying lists of companies and individuals are purely intended as
informational with no implied endorsement. For further information on these
companies, you will need to contact them directly. In addition, the information
in the accompanying lists has been provided by the companies and individual
themselves, and the government makes no claim as to the accuracy or authenticity
of this information.
Both National Weather Service (NWS) and the private sector maintain compilations of contact information for
private sector meteorologists as well as private weather service companies that
have indicated that they provide weather services within the U.S. Below are links to these non-NWS and NWS listings.
The NWS strives to keep its listings as up-to-date as possible. If you would like to be added to the NWS listing or modify existing information, please use the contact information below.
The non-NWS listings may provide more detailed information on commercial weather services than is contained in the NWS listing and we encourage their use. The non-NWS links, below, are those compilations that we are aware of at the present time. To request addition of another site containing listings of private-sector meteorologists serving the U.S., please use the contact information below.
