Mobile Access to Official NWS Forecasts and Warnings

The National Weather Service has developed a website for wireless access to official NWS forecasts and warnings from mobile devices such as PDA's, cell phones, and pagers. The products available are identical to ones available on our standard internet site (/dtx/wxnow.php); however they are formatted for use with mobile devices using the industry standard wireless markup language (WML). In order to access the wireless version of our site, you will need a mobile device equipped with a wireless applications protocol (WAP) browser and a wireless internet service provider.

The internet address for our wireless site is the same as for our regular site:

http://weather.gov/dtx/

When you load our site from a wireless device, you will automatically be directed to the wireless version. If you have any problems with this redirection, or you think you have a wireless browser that is not being detected, you can link directly to the wireless version:

http://weather.gov/dtx/wml/

This wireless site is a new undertaking, and should be considered a work in progress. Your feedback about this new service will be very helpful. Please send any comments to w-dtx.webmaster@noaa.gov.

Disclaimer: The National Weather Service provides access to forecasts and warnings via WAP-enabled devices as part of our core mission to protect life and property and enhance the national economy. This site in no way constitutes an endorsement of any particular equipment vendor or wireless service provider.

Our standard disclaimer and privacy policy also apply to the wireless version of our site.
