      • Add Google Analytics Integration

        There are a few ideas out about expanding the view counter to show historical data but was thinking it would be good to be able to integrate a Google Analytics account so the PWS owner could see more details on who is viewing their station. This could be a sub analytics ID in addition to what Wunderground already has on the site.

        Would be interesting to see regions and visitor information that is viewing the station.

        • Have an option to reciieve text messages if my PWS stops sending data to WU.

          Right now I can choose to receive an email if my PWS stops sending data to WU for 2 hours. I would like an option to receive this notification in a text also or in place of the email. Texts reach me rapidly and would let me correct the problem sooner.

          Not as important but the option to change the time the after data stops that the notification is sent out. I suggest a one hour minimum and make this use settable.

          Thanks for considering my thoughts.

          • Dont remove stations

            Instead of removing stations you feel are reporting inaccurate data, leave the station on and change the icon. By removing a station, the owner may start looking for a hardware/software problem that doesnt exist. By changing the icon color when WU feels the data is inaccurate, you are telling viewers that the station is functioning, but the info may be inaccurate. You are also telling the owner that the station is reporting, but for some reason WU does not feel the data is correct. Removing a station is a real inconvenience for viewers and pws owners.

            • Allow station owners to set correct timezone

              I've added two stations and both timezones are incorrect with the default setup greyed out. When is this going to get corrected?

                • WMO Norms for temperature and rain calculation

                  According to WMO and in some countries the daily data are calculated as foolow:
                  Tx is observed between D-1 at 6.00 pm UTC and D at 6.00 pm UTC
                  Tn is observed between D at 6.00 am UTC and D+1 at 6.00 am UTC
                  Rr is observed between D at 6.00 am UTC and D+1 at 6.00 am UTC

                  While in the data shown on the site is based on NOAA norms from 0 to 0 for each day.

                  An option to automaticaly display those data would be awsome.

                  Thanks

                  • Why doesnt Wunderground uses windrose or radar plot for wind speed and directions?

                    The actual graph depicting the wind direction and speeds should be replaced by a windrose or radar plot with 16 points or directions

                    • Webcam playback seems erratic across many stations

                      I've noticed that the webcam video playback across many stations can often have large gaps in the time of the image capture and often also goes back much further than 24 hours. From my quick look it appears that the time "dropouts" occur are common across many webcams which leads me to think that it has more to do with receipt or playback of the images by Wunderground rather than a specific webcam that isn't able to upload images consistently. It would be nice to get a complete playback of 24 hours of images when a Wunderground maps user taps…

                          When I click on my weather station (KMIMIDDL8) or my neighbors (KMIMIDDL7) on the 'Nearby Weather Stations' it displays it is in "Johnson, MI (49302)" but it's actually Middleville, MI 49333. Other views correctly show the location.

                            • Make it possible to search for stations by measurement types

                              I would like to be able to view only nearby stations with rarer measurements types, such as solar radiation, UV, soil moisture, etc. Since these more specialized measurements comprise a smaller fraction of PWS data, it's time-consuming and sometimes difficult to locate them.

                                  Lakeport wx is unique onto itself. Clear Lake dominates and dictates wind.
                                  Lampson Field wind and sky rarely the same as Ukiah.
                                  Today we report and are overcast yet you call us clear.

                                  • Provide a direct link to the station in the email sent to the owner when a station is down.

                                    As many of us receive these emails on devices other than desktop PCs, it would be helpful to have a link back to the station to see if it is still down or not. Could save a lot of time, and, in may case, travel.

                                    • Out if service alerts

                                      Since my station is serviced by my laptop, when I am traveling I receive several messages that the pws is not working correctly.

                                      How about the ability to indicate planned out of service dates so these messages will not appear.
