How can we improve the PWS service?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. What is the of having a support link?

    I have emailed support 5 times in the last 3 weeks and all have been ignored. I think a good idea would be to have a real live person to do just what the link implies, provide support.

    • filter for netatmo stations

      Please allow us to filter out netatmo stations. Temperatures of those stations are completely wrong during sunshine.

      • Total Precipitation only works on daily view

        Hi,

        When I look at the history data for my weather station, the rain total only works on daily mode. If I switch to weekly, monthly etc.. it just shows 'in'

        See images attached

        • Netatmo API performance issues?

          Been noticing that there seems to be significant delays with Netatmo API? Now on the mobile app, when I select my station on the map, it shows info from another location/station. and the e-mails about my station being down and back up are getting a little frustrating. Anyone working to address this yet?

          • PWS hit counter reset and not counting as of 0130 Z 4/22/2015

            The hit counter was apparently reset on all PWS as of about 0130 GMT on 4/22/2015 and counter does not increment beyond a count of 1. Example: "PWS viewed 1 time since April 1, 2015" Counter for my PWs was over 7000 hits just before time noted. Seems to be a global issue afflicting all stations. Please investigate.

            • Need to be able to set default station within the city

              I'm trying to set a specific PWS station to be my default station. The one that is the default for Boulder, CO (63rd and Jay St), is consistently 5-15 degrees colder than the rest of town this time of year, and I'd like to be able to see more accurate weather data for the part of the county that people actually go to.
              Every time I go to WU, I change the station. It doesn't stay selected as a default though. What can I do?

                • Max and average wind speed says kmh but is actually mph on weather stations

                  There is a bug. When selecting metric the wind speed records for the day ... in the table they stay in mph even tho it says kmh. Graph and live speeds are fine.

                  • Acurite Interface issues.

                    Improve Acurite interface issues. These affordable 5-in-1 stations can go offline for odd reasons, (PC updates, Power failures, etc.) and then are easily restored to Acurite's site, but the WU link seems to break easily. Right now I know I've been up for over a day on Acurite, but WU still says "not reporting". I occasionally get emails from WU on this, but often days after the fact. Please help

                    • measurement unit mistake

                      As you can see in the pictures, there is a mistake in summary of the day. the maximum wind speed in the metric system is the same as in the english system.
                      I think there is a conversion mistake from english system into metric system.
                      Maybe you can check this.

                        • Current readings at local weather stations

                          I am very unhappy that the elimination of the "Classic View" format has also eliminated the timestamps showing when local weather stations were updated and which ones are using rapid/real time updating. I do not like the new look of the site at all, it is cluttered and harder to look at, but losing this particular feature is the worst. Very sad.

                          • Need an attempt to weed out erroneous data from "outlier" stations consistently reporting temps +5-10 than others nearby.

                            Need an attempt to weed or correct out erroneous data from "outlier" stations consistently reporting temps 5-10 degress higher than others nearby. There is one in Rochelle, Illinois that is less than 2 miles from the official weather station at the airport, and its temp is almost always exactly 10 degrees higher. Never lower. Other stations nearby agree more closely with the airport. Obviously something wrong with that setup, but nobody is paying any attention to this credibility problem.

                              I know you have wonderful apps that are on the iPad and iPhone I was wondering if you ever thought about bringing that to the Mac OS. Now that I am using a Mac as a desktop having my Weather Underground as an app would be nice.

                              • First Time Login

                                During setup (with Acrite system), there is a period after creating the WU login and getting the new station ID that Acruite did not accept the login information. I figured it was just probably some part of the database not yet updated, so I left setup to the next day. Then it worked immediately. Might pay to warn new customers about a potential delay at that specific point in the setup?

                                    PWS should be evaluated according to its instalation.

                                    1. weather station brand / type
                                    2. location
                                    2.1 is it near a heating source (eg. street, chimney )?
                                    2.2 are there obstacles nearby blocking wind vane and rain gage (eg. tall buildings, trees)?
                                    2.3 is termometer inside reliable UV shield? and is it fan aspirated?
                                    2.4 how often is data being uploaded to WU ?

                                    According to these criterias a "reliability rate" should be assigned to stations. Then a filter could be applied to get only the most reliable stations and those could be used to do averages of weather in…

                                    • RapidFire widgets: use HTML5 / web 2.0

                                      Flash is proprietary and simply poses too many and too frequent security risks for users. For the RapidFire widgets, it would be better to use the open HTML5 and some web 2.0 AJAX standards. Not every device supports Flash anyway. Most, if not all modern devices and browsers suport HTML5. I abandoned using the widgets because the technology is proproetary, a risk and franky, is becoming dated.

                                      • Review webcams

                                        Please come up with a minimum standard for Weather cams. Many webcams have ZERO sky. For example we have a "weathercam" here in Boise, ID that is of a chicken coop. People are wasting WU money and resources and taking away from WU the weather focus. Thanks
