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.
