The Weather Channel Presents: The Best of Smooth Jazz is a 2007 compilation release by Midas Records. It peaked at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Contemporary Jazz charts in the same year.[1]

The first CD from the Weather Channel heralded the network's entry into retail music. The network's music had been a source of interest for viewers, who had written in for years asking where they could purchase the music played during the "Local on the 8s" segment, broadcast 288 minutes each day. The 12-song compilation features the channel's most requested music.[2][3]
