The forecast is grim for fans of KVUE’s digital weather channel.

Currently found on channel 24.3, the round-the-clock service features a mix of local and national forecasts, as well as live radar, traffic conditions and more.

But the launch of the Justice Network on Jan. 20 will displace that content, according to the station.

“As to the 24/7 Weather Channel, it has been a priority over the years and will remain a priority for KVUE to provide this vital information to our viewers,” president and general manager Patti Smith said in message to viewers. “With technological advances, we know that we can share this information in a variety of ways, and continue to serve Central Texas with the most comprehensive weather information. Towards that end, we suggest our viewers utilize kvue.com, our KVUE Radar mobile app and the KVUE WeatherCast mobile app to provide the weather information previously displayed on our dot.3 channel.”

The Justice Network, when it debuts, will feature a variety of crime-focused programs, including many that previously aired on TruTV and its predecessor, Court TV. Some of those shows include “Alaska State Troopers,” “Body of Evidence,” “Dominick Dunne’s Power, Privilege and Justice,” “I, Detective,” “The Investigators,” “LA Forensics,” “Locked Up Abroad,” “Masterminds,” “Missing Persons Unit,” “Murder by the Book,” “Over the Limit” and “Psychic Detectives.”

Gannett, KVUE’s owner, signed a deal late last year adding the Justice Network to its stations nationwide.
