I recently was introduced to Poncho, which offers the weather forecast via text. What I like about it is that it is personalized – you tell Poncho what time you wake up daily so you get the alerts before you head out of your house. You can also indicate if you want hair forecasts (will my hair be static-y?) or subway updates. You’ll get the weather delivered to you via text in the morning, and then you can click on a link to get a more in-depth report on subway delays and things like that.
The Poncho weather text service is free so give it a try here.
