    • Rename “Dr.” Jeff Masters' blog

      Current name with “Dr.”is not quite pretentious enough — should be “Dr. Jeff Maestro's blog”

          • <br /> vs <p> use and making text reader friendly

            BTW: Huge I am a fan and so my critique/suggestion is offered because I want see you folks to continue to make make your remarkably great website the class leader, that I believe it has become. 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…

              سلام ، من علی فخرذاکری ، اولین سازنده ی بلوزهای متال داکتهای نیروگاهی باگوشه های گرد یکپارچه به روش ابتکاری برای اولین بار در خاورمیانه هستم اما جدا از این ، فکر میکنم که عده ای برای گرفتن امتیازهای چیزی مثل کشف یکی از حفره های امنیتی مایکروسافت ، REL و گزارش ابتکاری آن بنام فلش در دستگاهی بنام رمزی هستند
              جالبتر اینکه چیزیکه موجب اطلاع آنها از این عملکرد من شده ، کنترلی است که از سوی آنها از مدتها قبل روی رفتار من بدلایلی صورت گرفته که نباید گفت ، اما ناخودآگاه من همواره سایه ی آنهابصورت مبهم…

              • 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.

                  • 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.

                          Give many more options in the preference menu that we can save so that we don't have to repeat our moves each time we open the Wunderground website. e.g: how many favorites to show, which view to open with, ability to use our home address as a place marker, etc.

                          • West Coast Weather Blog

                            It seems WU has meteorologists blogging about every area except the West Coast. True, our weather may not be as dramatic as that in the eastern and southern states, but we do have weather, too. WU is based in SF, so surely there must be a meteorologist at headquarters who is interested in West Coast weather. Isn't there anything worth explaining and/or discussing about West Coast weather???

                              • Misleading Information RE: Marine Forecast

                                There are two separate marine forecasts given for the same location.
                                Marine weather for PZ 645 & PZ 670.

                                One states: Small Craft Advisory, while the other suggests Gale Warning, both with different wind speeds listed.

                                Which would be an accurate reading to assist mariners on open water?

                                I contacted Wunderground several weeks ago to inquire about the same concern however never heard back.

                                Thank you

                                  • customizable search on specific bloggers

                                    Idea: It might be already in the works, how 'bout under WxU official bloggers include a customizable backwards search on any tag. EXAMPLE: i'm looking for Dr. Masters mentioning of "Greenland+heat waves" and i enter 28 into the amount of months i want to search back to. RESULT: i get all of Dr. Masters mentioning of GREENLAND+HEAT WAVES from December 20-11 till April 2014.

                                    COMMENT ON BETA PGS:
                                    Previewing the 2014 BETA pages, maybe its me getting use to the next/newer version or WxU has tweaked a few feature or both, but it "feels" smoother to visit different sections of…

                                    • Please do NOT include images and Flash videos in blog quotes.

                                      I posted this comment a few days ago in the Product Team blog. Since the latest posting there encourages us to share our ideas here, I'm reposting an edited version here as well.

                                      Noticed that the way quoting behaves in the beta-test site blogs has changed radically. In the current site blogs, images NEVER appeared in the quoted material; now they do. Worse, Flash videos also appear in the quotations.

                                      Don't think quoting images or videos is a good idea in ANY of the blogs, but especially NOT in Dr. Master's blog. People there often post humorous images or videos…

                                        Not sure membership accounts is the proper category above...we now have the option of seeing our favorite blogger's photos...seems to be missing off the beta

                                        • Your local 24 hr temp graph should fully display 24 hrs of data. Currently it's an impoverished display.

                                          Your local 24 hr temp graph should cycle time along the x-axis to fully display 24 hrs of data. Currently it's a needlessly impoverished display. If you feel viewers can't immediately grasp this, then place a thick triangle under the current time at the far right edge of the graph, but I doubt this is needed. Consider the 3-day moving graphs at our local U of MN Climatological Observatory as an example: http://climate.umn.edu/img/wxsta/airtemp.gif
