Residents of metropolitan Washington can now dial (202) 589-1212 for current weather, air quality information and forecasts. According to its sponsors, the Metropolitan Council of Governments (COG) and Clean Air Partners, the weather line has received about 170,000 calls since January 2012.
COG has provided regional air quality forecasts since the 1970s, and the Clean Air Partners program educates people on ways to reduce air pollution and protect their health. The line encourages callers to visit the Clean Air Partners website
to sign up for Air Quality Alerts, a free service that emails air quality information to subscribers.
