Blogs

Thanks for providing feedback about Weather Underground. We regularly check these forums for ideas and read everything that is posted. But, due to the high volume of feedback we receive, we won’t be able to reply to everyone. — WU Product Team

How can we improve the blogs?

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".
(thinking…)

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. Where is the Printable Forcast?

    It would be nice to have a printable link or page so somebody could print off the weather report every day.

    • Cyclone Pam Hurricane Models

      It would be interesting for a comparison/analysis on Dr. Masters' blog of the hurricane models that predicted Cyclone Pam up to a week out with what really happened (i.e., strength, track, etc). It was really quite remarkable how accurate (I think) they were.

      • Please show the daily low temp. first. That's when it occurs.

        The way you show it now is the high first but the low temp. doesn't occur until 6 or 7 AM the next day.

        • Comment filters need addressing

          Left a comment (screen shot attached) at the wuproduct team blog just. This has need addressing for a long time. Just a not right situation. I know you have reset at least one wu members comments filter level, how about doing it across the board

            • Use UTC wherever GMT is used (specifically the blogs)

              It seems that as a technical site, you should be using UTC, not GMT for parts of the site where the local time is not used (i.e. the blog). It's a minor thing, but it fits with the wunderground ethos IMHO.

              • Harshness of Winter 2014-15 vs. last year and 1976-77

                I would be interested in your take on whether this coming winter is going to be as cold as either or both last winter and/or the winter of 1976-77. In doing some research, it seems like the set up for this winter is very analogous to winter 1976-77. Your thoughts?

                • Is CO2 created equal?

                  As per Oppenheimer report from global warming consortium. Why is there no differential between the effect of CO2 produced on the surface vs. CO2 injectedinto upper atmosphere by jet traffic?

                  • Weather almanac for previous day should be first link below 10 day forecast

                    This is most important info for 90 percent of readers and that's why its featured in newspapers and NOAHH. (High, low, records for that date, & precipitation) Now you've buried it in a mountain of data and finding it requires gymnastic surfing. Return to your old simple weather almanac format with this in the lead and the other details following.

                        Why are leaves called leaves???
                        Answer:they leave the tree

                        Why is fall called fall?
                        Answer. Because that is when the leaves leave the tree and fall to the ground.

                                    • more than one year of weather history

                                      I'm trying to get weather history from several cities throughout the US and CA for several years running. The weather history only returns one year of data no matter what dates I put in. I'm only collecting the comma delimited info so I can put it into a spreadsheet and run some charts etc...

                                      Currently I'll have to run the report for each year and paste them together. So in essence I'm having to do the job 4 or 5 times (once for each year) rather than being able to span multiple years and save some time.

The following, admittedly borders on nitpicking and this is not a widespread problem, but it is something I noticed right away, when opening Kari Strenfel's "nationalsummary" blog.

                                        My first instinct was to click the back button. This is because, large blocks of text are difficult for me to read.

                                        As a web developer myself, I wondered if this was intentional (i.e. that <p> tags…

                                        • When going to the US Nexrasd radar home, you post the storm ID, County, but no state abreviation.

                                          When going to the US Nexrad radar home screen, you post the storm ID, county, but no state abbreviation, below the radar map. You also can not click on max hail size any longer and get greatest to smallest.
