    • bring back the last version...this is terrible and useless. you don't even give the percentage of rain, no radar...a disaster!

      Bring back the last version..this new one is useless! Don't "Fix" something if it isn't broken...I depended on your site, not sure where I will go now, but I won't use weather underground until you bring back the classic version!

        • Wundermap layer preferences not saving.

          Many had the same issue with the Nexrad radar not saving settings. I have not deleted cookies, cleared my cache, etc.

          I have to re select my preferences every time I use the maps, and "save preferences" does not work.

          Thanks in advance!

          • New Wondermap seems to have lost ability to sort the storms by ID, Hail %, Speed, etc.

            Previous version allowed user to click on headings (ID, Severe Hail, Hail %, Speed, etc) and sort them accordingly. This was useful when trying to find a particular cell from a busy radar screen, determining what cells were most dangerous, or where the most rain was likely to be falling. Now, it has them arbitrarily sorted and we have to search for the information line by line. In severe weather, it might be so cluttered and full of cells that we can't find the storm info we need in time for it to be useful!

            • I love the historical radar - can you slow down the frame advance so we can see it better?

              When watching how a storm came through my town last night, it would be nice to be able to slow the historical radar frame advance. As it loads now on my PC, it whips by way too fast. Thanks

              • Radar Refresh

                The old WunderMap, if left in static mode, would update every few minutes. The new WunderMap does not; the same radar image remains until either the browser is refreshed or the site errors out losing the radar layer, and requiring a refresh.

                  Hi,

                  The Radar image should update by itself even when not animating. Can you tell me which browser are you using?
                  Though, I have noticed that the Radar does not update if I leave WunderMap open in a background tab for a few hours or more. In that case, the best solution right now is to refresh the page. I realize that this is not ideal, and we will soon look into fixing this.

                • Hide stations without rain gauge when displaying precipitation totals.

                  When displaying the precipitation totals layer, exclude stations that obviously do not have a rain gauge. This could be done with a simple logical test: if the station has never recorded any precipitation, or hasn't done so in the last year, then hide it on the rainfall totals layer. There are lots of DOT and similar stations that are not equipped with a rain gauge and end up showing a data point of zero, often times causing a nearby station with a functioning rain gauge not to be shown.

                  • When I have layers open in Wundermap, the majority of the menu is whited out. I have an area of about 1/4" to scroll from. Why??

                    Remove the white layer that shows up over the scroll items. I don't see any purpose for this. It keeps me from using it.

                    • I HATE the new wunderground radar map!!!!

                      I can't see what's coming my way. I live in tornado country and I need to be able to see what it coming, but the new radar map is dismal and so general. What happened to the detail of the old radar map?!!! FIX!!! No detail. I've switched to accuweather for good radar.

                          • Safari problems

                            When moving the map to locate information, the hand tool with the grab and move function does not work right with Safari. You end up not getting the map to move at all and makes you more aggravated than anything. Grr!

                              • Add Isobars and Isotherms!

                                Your map is useless without traditional isobars and isotherms. It does not show the movement of air masses clearly, it does not show anything clearly, it looks like a golf course! I can't see any fronts, any useful information! I have to see jet stream path, cold and warm fronts, just like old newspaper maps that were so easy to read and SO MUCH MORE informative! Stop focusing on technodazzle and communicate clearly!
                                And you do not have local enough information for 19103.

                                • Add max/min filters for stations on the map.

                                  It would be neat to have a map layer(s) that would display 24 hour Max/min conditions, such as 24 hour Max wind speed, high and low temperatures for the day. Consider slider filters so, for instance, only stations with a Max wind speed over 30 mph are shown, or only stations with a daily low below 32 degrees are shown. See NOAA Mesonet map site for a rough example.

                                  • Auto-refresh option setting seems to be missing from the new Wundermap. The map does not refresh without user input.

                                    Please add the option of when to refresh the displayed data as a time frame. e.g. 1, 5, 15 minutes etc. Currently, Wundermap does not even auto-refresh without user input. I either have to manually reload the page, and thus re-configure how I would like the display to look. Or move the map and then back to the view I had which is now displaying old data.

                                    • Wind barbs are hard-coded for the Northern Hemisphere

                                      It's great to see winds on WunderMap represented using wind barbs however they render incorrectly for the Southern Hemisphere. The flags should point towards the lower pressure. e.g. In a westerly the flags should point north in the NH and south in the SH.

                                      • Radar and Satellite images will not show at the same time in Chrome

                                        When viewing radar and cloud cover I have to choose one or the other, the combined image won't show.

                                        • Town Marker

                                          The old version of the enlarged radar Wundermap had a marker at your desired town. The new version of the map seems to be lacking that town marker.
                                          Can you please put the town marker back?!
