Are there other "local" phone numbers to reach FSS besides 1800wxbrief?

The answer seems to be "yes," but does anyone know where to find them?

Alaska is unique in continuing to offer local Flight Service Stations. In the lower 48 states, weather stations have been automated and FSS functions have all been consolidated into a single call-center location.

So to answer your question, there are no "local" flight service stations any more in the lower 48. You can find more background information by doing a word search on "consolidation of flight service stations."

  • $\begingroup$ In the first paragraph you say that Alaska has local Flight Service Stations and in the second paragraph you say there are no more local Flight Service Stations. $\endgroup$
