1. Dan Chandler:
I like his narration the best because I like the way he uses different phases on each segment and kinda makes each local forecast different and I also like it when we here the WeatherSTAR 3000 on the national feeds on cable systems and trying to figure out is this the WeatherSTAR 3000 or WeatherSTAR 4000 narration.

2. Allen Jackson:
I was getting use to his narration untill it was discontinued.

3. Jim Cantore:
I like his too!

-----------------------------------------------

The fun thing about this is hearing it on national feeds to figure out which is which and hearing different phases on other local forecast to make it looks different.

The only reason I like narration on the local forecasts from 2000 on was that it was useful for the visually impaired--more so with IntelliStars and IS2s.

The only drawback is that it does cut into the background music.

It doesn't really matter to me because the current local forecast music is too repetitive.
