Is shortwave radio still in use across the US giving out weather reports and the like?

The National Weather service broadcasts continuous weather information over VHF radio, including severe storm warnings, across much of the U.S.

My experience touring with a small AM/FM/Weatherband radio has been that service is reliable in agricultural or populated areas, and less common in mountainous/forested regions.

To see what areas are covered:
