There are also some weather monitors that link to the WWW and show you what NOAA says the weather should be... or it listens to NOAA radio (like 162.55MHz is one of the stations all of 'em are close to that) and work great if you are in range.. Not so great if you are not. Same as Weather Radios

I have multiple Weather Capable Radios here.. One is dedicated. the others are "General Coverage"


Home is where I park it.

"Weather stations" don't link to anything. They show current conditions where you are. No warnings, nada. They don't warn you that a line of tornados or heavy snowfall is heading your way etc.

I think it depends on your idea of "forecast".

I've been using barometers to give me a "forecast" for the next days weather for decades. I have found things like a dial barometer and the "Captain's Glass" water barometer to be far more accurate for the next days weather than standard weather forecasts.

I listen to the radio (and internet weather sites) all the time for weather for the upcoming week.

Find what works for you, and go camping!
