Here is why we can not connect. I contacted the NOAA webmaster. It is Comcasts fault. if they(comcast) dont resolve this i will quit Comcast outright. Too expensive for this not to work. i attached the E-mail.
This has been an on-and-off issue. It's due to Comcast moving to DNSSEC, which requires security between DNS servers. The .GOV domain doesn't always properly update their security certificates, which then causes Comcast's DNS to block it since it's not sure it's a valid DNS record.
Short of using alternate DNS, you can also add the domain to your computer's HOSTS file (Windows), which overrides DNS. Only safe to do if you REALLY know what you are doing.
Although I didn't have problems today, there have been more than a few occasions where I could not reach weather.gov or noaa.gov over the past couple of months. The problem has always cleared itself later in the day, however, when I just can't wait...
My solution has been to temporarily change the dns entries from Comcast to another dns provider. After browsing those sites, I change it back to the Comcast DNS ip(s). This workaround has solved my problem.
I believe there have been a couple of topics in this forum about the noaa or weather.gov sites having this problem.
I'm using Comcast and had no problem getting to it. Something just got corrupted at the link you are trying to use, or you were trying to type it in wrong. It happens.
