Our team in the media

From a Baltimore County high school classroom ... to recognition by Yahoo News in August 2011 as "an innovative and hugely informative weather information site," and a "credible weather source" by the Seattle Times, Foot's Forecast has become a go-to team for locally relevant weather by thousands across the country every day. This chronology of highlights is the true story of what has been said about our team by the media.
