Update (6/30/15): After receiving comments from two people, I believe I was wrong about the LFs from Houston, Texas. Both suggested that they came from Lubbock, and I see no reason to disagree. So I updated the information below to reflect that.
One of the things I like about YouTube is that you can find local forecasts from other locations. So I thought it would be fun to start a series of posts featuring local forecasts from cities that aren't in my DVD collection. If you haven't already, be sure to check out my post of local forecasts from Hawaii.
The first local forecast comes from Knoxville, Tennessee. It was posted by "Ronald Geer" and recorded on April 29, 1993. The song playing in the background is "One More River Passing" by True North.
The second one is from Phoenix, Arizona. It was posted (ironically) by "Local Forecast" and recorded on August 6, 1998. The song is "Once Again" by Richard Tyznik. I guess they didn't use the HOT! icon when it was a "dry heat."
Our next local comes from Miami, Florida. Posted by "WREYtube," it was recorded during "SuperStorm '93." Their forecast isn't all that exciting for this Midwestern guy, but I guess lows in the 30s are a big deal there. The song playing is "Jenny C" by Peter Buffett.
Here's another local recorded during "SuperStorm '93." This one comes from Elmira, New York, and was posted by TWC Classics contributor Bryan Farr. Being way north of Miami, their forecast is naturally more impressive. In this local, they are experiencing heavy snow, strong winds, and no visibility. The song is "Magellan" by Richard Burmer.
Another local from Bryan, but this one comes from Portsmouth, New Hampshire. It was recorded on January 6, 1995 and features "Reunion" by The Benoit/Freeman Project.
This next video features parts of two local forecasts and was recorded on March 28, 1987. I'm not sure of the exact location, but I've had two people guess that it's Lubbock, Texas. The song in the first local is "September Rain" by George Howard. The second one (at the end) is "Regular Folks" by The Yellowjackets.
Our final (partial) local forecast comes from "LGemini." It was recorded in Detroit, Michigan on July 30, 1992. The song is "Night Flight" by Joe Sample.
