Williamsburg weather is back on the 8's

Williamsburg is back, at least on The Weather Channel.

For approximately a week the station's "Local on the 8's" feature, a look at local weather every 10 minutes, has substituted Newport News for Williamsburg. That angered some people in Williamsburg, about a dozen of whom contacted the Gazette, either through email or the Last Word.

Cox spokeswoman Jessica Carver responded Wednesday afternoon to an inquiry from the Gazette.

"We recently experienced an issue with a piece equipment that allows us to localize the content on The Weather Channel," Carver explained. "The equipment that failed was replaced today and the local Williamsburg weather content has been restored."
