Quick Readable US Weather Forecasts

My August 2011 weather tip began failing in June 2012, because the National Weather Service changed the link mobile.weather.gov to -- and I just figured this out tonight -- cell.weather.gov. So, for classic eInk-friendly US weather forcasts, we now can:

1. Navigate to cell.weather.gov, via Robin Gardner's readingthenet.com, by entering this url:

tinyurl.com/cbtjg3n

2. Enter your zip code in the first entry block and click on Go.

3. Navigate down to, and click on:

Detailed 7-day Forecast

The rest is for the benefit of newbies:

4. When the forecast is returned, press Menu and then save with "Bookmark this Page."

5. To give a clearly understandable bookmark name, press Menu again to go to Bookmarks.

6. To get to your new bookmark, you may have to go down one page, as in a book.

7. When your new and ill-named bookmark is underlined, press the right side of the five-way.

8. Press the center of the five-way and type in "My Home Town Weather" or similar.
