The computer has radically changed the way most of us get weather briefings, and, by the way, those sites are perfectly legal so long as the weather ultimately comes from “primary aviation weather products” (NWS). I rarely call FSS except for another check on TFRs (and in this election year that’s really important) or to file a last-minute IFR flight plan. If you prefer a telephone Flight Service brief, that’s fine too, but it’s not easy to absorb all the verbal information, especially when the TAFs have multiple changes during the forecast period. I used to be reluctant to ask a briefer to slow down, repeat or translate the times into local, 12-hour clock time (yeah, 28 years in government and I still count on my fingers to convert from the 24-hour clock). But I finally decided to grow up, make damn sure I got both the details and the big picture and quit worrying about making the specialist slow down and repeat for this ditzy, airhead lady pilot!
