Does anyone know of a service that would send a text message of the day's weather to my phone every morning? This seems like a terribly obvious thing, and I can't believe it doesn't exist. The closest thing I got from a brief Google search was AccuWeather Alert, but there's not much flexibility there.|
The idea reminds me a bit of an old post by Marc Hedlund on O'Reilly Radar. If you're looking for a new business model, find an old unix command and implement it on the web. Google is grep, S3 is mount, etc. As far as I know, there's no cron service...
looks like weatherbug (http://www.weatherbug.com/mobile/default.asp
) has a mobile app.... not sure how intrusive it is though - I know I hated their pc application because it took over my desktop. Although, that was 3 years ago, so maybe it's gotten better.

Did you try the Weather Channel?
It looks like they can send you a daily SMS, if you sign up.
If this doesn't work, I don't think that idea would too hard to hack together. You would just need a cron job that queries a weather site, then e-mails the results to your providers e-mail <-> SMS gateway.
