There are lots of sources if you can receive SSB :

- the USCG has both Offshore and High Seas Forecasts which are broadcast on several HF frequencies on a regular schedule (check their website);

- WLO in LA re-transmits these broadcasts on their marine frequencies; check their schedule online;

- several ham nets broadcast the WX....the Waterway Net on 7268LSB daily beginning at 0745 Eastern time, the Maritime Mobile Service Net on 14300USB daily on the half hour, etc.;

- there are weather nets on the marine SSB frequencies, like the Bahamas WX Net on 4003 USB at, I believe, 0720 AST;

- WWV broadcasts a brief WX report every hour on 5, 10, 15, and 20 mHz -- check their schedule; and

- the Hurricane Net operates on 14325 continuously whenever a hurricane is threatening the U.S. mainland

In addition to the various websites noted above, you can find detailed times and schedules and stations here: http://docksideradio.com/wefax.htm
