  1. Go back to old style GFS/NAM model maps

    Please go back to the old Model Maps. They were so much easier to use, and I used the 4 panel maps very often. Now that is completely gone. These now Model Maps are so counter intuitive.

    The addition of other models are very much welcome, but please go back to the old style even if you only allow it on the classic site (and you never shut the classic site down).

        • Global Warming as a “severe weather alert?” No thanks.

          I come to this site for local weather forecasts, not to be slapped with an alert banner promoting political global warming nonsense. I don’t care if this noise is on the site, but making it appear just as a severe weather alert would is taking it too far.

            • How can one navigate to the simpler map?

              I posted this straightforward question in the "New Site" forum; and, oddly, got no response. So I'll try again here.

              How can one navigate to the simpler map? It is still available.
              E.g.: http://wxub.us/1p6h
              I've forgotten the words that are used to describe it (but my shortcut is named "WF"). However, I cannot see how to navigate to that presentation from the new home page. The WunderMap is more sophisticated than I need for normal purposes; so, when I just want a quick look, I have always used the presentation the above link produces. I was going to point a…

                Hello,

                Sorry that we couldn’t respond back to your earlier post.

                You can get to Full Screen Weather from the link in the right-side of the footer at every page of the site. We will look into the possibility of giving this more prominence and potentially adding it to the main navigation menu.

                Regarding WunderMap – in the coming weeks we will be trying to make it simpler for people who just want to take a quick look. This includes enabling scroll to zoom functionality in the default view.
                You are right that you can scroll to zoom when you enter the ‘Presentation Mode’ on WunderMap. You can turn on/off Presentation Mode by going to the Settings menu (gear icon) in the top-right of the header on WunderMap.

              • make a button to allow people to change Celsius to Fahrenheit.

                Make a button to allow people to change from Celsius to Fahrenheit. Some of us can't do the calculations in our heads!

                • Bring back the other WunderMap feedback that you removed

                  How come you removed the most popular, and critical, feedback threads for the WunderMap?

                  This new WunderMap is horrible, and unusable. Deleting the threads within 'Send us your WunderMap feedback' does absolutely nothing to solve the actual problem: that the new map sucks. Deleting the posts with the most negative feedback isn't helpful.

                  • Please give me back my old interface.

                    The new one sucks so much I'm considering abandoning you guys after like a decade of loyalty.

                    My favorites are invisible, and it actually seems to crash my iPad more than the Classic mode!

                    A clean interface is only clean if it shows the same info better. Less info and more loading calls is a messier interface, not cleaner.

                    • Provide a website user preference to display the full site on a mobile device.

                      If I'm not using the app, I want data not in the app. For example, this morning I was after the Convective Outlook map. To get to it from the app, I went to the web site, scrolled way, way, way down, selected Contact Us (since I couldn't seem to find a link to just display the full site), hit the Severe tab at the top of the page, and displayed the Convective Outlook map.

                          • Current Temp on larg 'sticker" needs to be fixed. Minus sign for deg C is on wrong line. Looks like a hyphen.

                            Currently, the reading is 28.6F is followed on the same line with the minus sign. Thus, the 1.8C looks like a positive reading.

                              • Not use flash for anything on your page. Items that include flash are not readable on most mobile devices.

                                Skip the mobile app, which is normally too crippled to be as useful as the full website, and go straight to a more efficiently loading, data rich website. As a user i want less lame apps and more website speed. As a user who bounces from computer to device, i still prefer the website to any app.

                                • Hate it. Forced mobile no option of desktop

                                  I've used the desktop version for a long time FOR A REASON now you've forced mobile view with no option of desktop view. you no longer stand out above the rest. I liked all the options and all the information, all the rapid fire station displays on my front page. now I just see current weather. You were lightyears above the others for watchers and now you're below. I want no forced mobile view or an option to change to desk top and it back the way it was or I'm going away.

                                    • create a 7-day animation of the North American Jet Stream as a fixture of the front page

                                      We keep hearing about how the jet stream getting stuck in a pattern is a cause for extreme weather. We also commonly see static images like the one in Jeff Masters' blog today: http://www.wunderground.com/blog/JeffMasters/comment.html?entrynum=2452. However it's not the *shape* of the jet that matters for explaining the extreme weather, but how it *changes over time* (or doesn't). Since this is becoming ever more of a factor for understanding North American weather, a "click to animate" picture of the jet would be a great addition to the front page. Let's see for ourselves how stuck it is! :-)

                                      • Make the WunderMap link in Classic link to the new WunderMap

                                        Make the WunderMap link in Classic link to the new WunderMap. I prefer Classic WU, but I put a bookmark to the new WunderMap on my Firefox bookmarks toolbar. You could just change the link in Classic for WunderMap to go to the new Wundermap.
