Mine in Lancaster had the following:

  • Lancaster (local forecast)
  • Lancaster Radar
  • Travel
  • Airport
  • Garden
  • Health
  • Ski

I think that's all of them. I wish I had recorded more Weatherscan videos before Cocmast removed it.

That how it basically was like in Philadelphia area Weatherscans on Comcast until early 2005, except it was before the local radar was added.

There's another Weatherscan for Pittsburgh/Penn Hills, right? I remember you said there was a Pittsburgh/Penn Hills that you wish you received but your headend chose to have the other one.

I actually forgot about that unit, and yes, you're right. I never got to see that one. Why they opted not to use that unit I'll NEVER know. Instead, we were getting weather for other cities besides Pittsburgh, like Washington and Wheeling, which was useless to me.

It was the Pittsburgh North unit:

Downtown Pittsburgh
New Kensington
Penn Hills

Comcast Pleasantville's Weatherscan has underwent many changes since 2006. The current conditions and forecasts are now for the Atlantic City area instead of Pleasantville (this likely happened around late 06 or early 07). It also uses new local obs sites, and even the airports and travel cities are arranged differently than other Weatherscans in the area. What's also uniquely different is that this Weatherscan has a more zoomed in radar for the radar segment. Most others in the area use the same radar for the Radar and Forecast segments. Also, on the Station ID page it uses a neat sunny beach background, instead of the Philadelphia skyline like what it used to show.

Segments:

Atlantic City Area (CC: Atlantic City Boardwalk)
Local Radar (formerly Pleasantville Radar)
Travel
Airports (formerly Airport)
Health

No, this was what I saw when I was in Sea Isle City, NJ. The Pleasantville and Avalon headends both get this Weatherscan. I did however pass by Northfield (which I think is pretty close to where you live) while on the GSP on my way back.
