Weather reports in the field

Hi guys

I am going up next week and will not have net access or cable. With the variable weather going on right now, was wondering if anyone has a good phone/recording weather forecast resource. When I scouted the area this summer, had decent cell coverage. Found the NOAA number, it's OK, kind of vague, and busy. Thanks for any ideas.

If you have a smartphone you

If you have a smartphone you can download a weather app--there are several and most are free to download and use.  The one I use is WeatherBug.  

I don't have a suggested number to call for a weather report as I haven't used this type of service for many, many moons.  A quick search on Google popped up this link, it may be the NOAA number..don't know.

I carry a two way Radio with me, and it has the NOAA weather on it, it gives me the up to date forecast.

We had the same issues years

We had the same issues years ago.  we ended up nuying the Motorola radios with the NOAA weather button.  I also did find the same weather alerts on the FM dial from a small transitter radio.
