  When the wx is severe and the wx channel is running storm stories, I
  tune to weatherscan (comcast). They run the wx for Brockton & Plymouth,
  close enough for me to see what's going on in MetroWest. During 
  severe wx they usually just keep running the radar. They do not show a 
  wide view to the west though. The music is awful! I mute the music, 
  watch the radar and listen to all the activity on my scanner.
