In Philadelphia is used to be TI6-1212 and WE6-1212 for time and weather, "The Bell Telephone Company of Pennsylvania bring you..."   I think it died a couple of years after the breakup of AT&T when these recordings were ruled "Enhanced Information Services" and thus the phone company was not allowed to provide them.

In My area there are three numbers:

717-263-5252 - This is sponsored by a local auto dealership and was already mentioned. Provides time and Weather
717-263-1100 - Same as above, different number.
301-797-9797 - This one is long distance and is hosted by a local radio station and sponsorship varies (the station fills in with their own ad on days without other sponsors). This provides weather only.

I have my own VoIP PBX and I can get the speaking clock by dialing *60 (I need to re-add the config for 1160 for rotary dials).

Don't forget a lot of information is available from 24/7 at 1-408-752-8052 (was 1-800-555-TELL).

Here in Richmond it used to be TIGER-22, but that's long gone. Now, I just call the US Naval observatory Atomic clock. That number is 1-202-762-1041.

Sorry, it's 202 762-1401 or 202 762-1069
However, when I call from my cellphone it does not answer, when I call from my Comcast VOIP line it answers immediately.

The Colorado number is 719 567-6742

All 3 worked perfect when I dialed from my 3 slot payphone in the kitchen, none answered from my cell. Odd.

All 3 numbers worked with my cell phone. I have USCellular as my carrier, a major minor player in the PCS phone business (had them since 1990, the dawn of large scale commercial service).

All three number answered with the tick tick of a clock, then a voice saying "from the US Naval Observatory the time is . . . "  No weather, just the universal time clock.

Who is your carrier?

For cell service, Verizon. I almost wish I had them for cable service, then at least I would have pulse service on my VOIP.

In Norway most of these numbers are gone, but we do still have a weather forecast  at  820 90 001 this cost lots, and you get personal service.  Time and temp is not available unless you use internet, or listen to the DAB-radio. FM and AM is shut down! :-(

I have even got a regular New York number :-) 646 570 1796

I currently have a 1965 Audichron Time and Temperature machine from NC hooked up to my AE step switch. It can be reached on C*NET by dialing 1-624-2257
This machine will be moving to a new home later this year and will be replaced by a machine from GTE in Texas that I am rebuilding.

The time service died here in Norway Jan 15 2007, the weather telephone is a service you still may use as a 820 number charging slightly less than $1 pr minute.  You may dial (dtmf) your zip code, and get it pretty local.

I remember reading that the local telephone company will provide you the time of day for an significant charge (more than 50 cents) by asking the operator as well.
