SMS Weather Forecast

The Weather Channel offers a 36 hour forecast to your phone. All you need to do is send a text to 4CAST (42278) with the subject of city or zip code.

Each message costs 75 cents.

Coastal areas can also get a Marine Outlook by adding the word "SEA" in front of the city name or zip code. For example, text "SEA 33199" to 4CAST (42278) for a Marine Outlook for Miami, Fl.
The Marine Outlook includes:
- Current Conditions
- Wind Speed and Direction
- Sea Temperature and Conditions
- Precipitation Chance
Each Marine Outlook is $0.75 and is only available for coastal areas.

But why pay .75 when you can get the same info for free from 4INFO .
