I wish our cable company had a weatherscan but we already have 2 local all weather channels, our NBC affiliate (NBC 24 Weather Plus) and our ABC affiliate (13 ABC Weather NOW) of course they are nothing compared to the WxScan

I don't see why your cable company doesn't have WxScan. I get Weatherscan (101), NBC (248), and the AccuWeather channel (246) here.

I'd say something about Weatherscan in my area, but since Time Warner took over Comcast in DFW, we no longer have it.

I think the whole cable headend option thing is BS. Everyone should have all applicable packages.
I disagree with you partially. While all should have the more common packages like Airport and Travel, weather doesn't permit all areas to do gardening, and not all areas have interest in golf or nearby golf courses either.

I don't see why all WxScans can't have Local, Airport, Travel...then add others.  What are all of them, anyway?

The ones I know of are:

Local Forecast
Additional City Forecast Packages
Local Radar
Airport
Travel
Traffic
Health
Garden
Golf
Boat & Beach
International Forecast

Other than the Local Forecast (of course) and Local Radar, all segments on Weatherscan are optional.

Hence the "applicable" part of my statement. :P

How come sometimes the Traffic.com screen shows and sometimes it doesn't, even if there are no traffic incidents that may prevent this screen from showing?

Didn't expect to see this... While browsing Craigslist, I saw in an ad for a TV, and Weatherscan was on the screen.

Looks like the CC city is Harrisburg and Harrisburg, Lancaster, and Lebanon are on the corner radar.

Mine has been doing this every once in awhile for quite some time.
