Has anyone ever heard this Current Conditions Narration? It's different from the normal "Currently In Our Area".

Interesting, I don't think I've ever heard that narration by Jim Cantore before, but I know Alan Jackson had one like that.  Always makes me curious how it's decided when the narration changes, like why is it sometimes "Currently in our area..." and sometimes "Currently, the temperature is...under..."

But I wonder why the sky conditions weren't narrated on the above clip? :thinking:

Ever since the WATT update in 2013, the IS2HD has never had a narration for Windy Conditions for some odd reason. Usually when Windy Conditions were reported on the LF, the IS2 would not play a narration or read the temp. The same cannot be said for the Cloudy/Windy Condtions, as there is a narration for that. Maybe during one of the minor updates TWC added this narration, but not a narration for Windy Conditions. It's very odd.

Our Intellistar 2 on Time Warner in NW Ohio recently got the main city changed to Defiance from Findlay, plus the same cities on the LDL as the Intellistar + 2 cities only the IS2 has.. The IS is not simulcast for now.
