A lot of amateur 2 meter radios have the weather bands because the weather channels are around 162MHz, and amateur 2 meter frequencies are around 144MHz, both in the 2 meter VHF band.

Whereas FM broadcast is down around 100MHz, far enough away that it takes some different circuitry.

Because of this, another good option would be a standalone weather radio.

Only thing I have found is a marine head unit.

If it was black, I'd probably already have it. Can't abide with the white.
