  1. 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.

      • Barometric pressure map

        An option to show barometric pressure on all Wundermaps. This would show the center of low pressure systems and high pressure systems and allow us to track their movement.

          We don’t have a barometric pressure map pulling from the Weather Stations as of now. We will look into the possibility of adding that.

          You can, however, look at isobars by going to Model Data layer. Turn the layer on and select the ECMWF model and MSL map type from the layer settings.
          Let me know if that helps.

        • 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!

          • 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.

              • Not a new complaint it seems but the new Wundermap has lots of great features but is so buggy I can't use it.

                Layers blink on and off by themselves. Some layers work sometimes and not others. Activating the satellite layer kills the radar layer. Don't you use the map yourselves and test it on the three major browsers? It doesn't look like it.

                • Radar animation loops still don't work properly

                  Radar animation is still stop and go. No smooth animation. Terrible

                  • 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.

                    • 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!

                      • Opacity slider for Storm Tracks

                        With lots of storms the Storm Track cones overlap totally obscuring other parts of the map.

                        Found only one storm in Oregon and it's Opacity is not connected to the Opacity slider so the problem will still exist. Suggest a separate slider for Storm Tracks to tone them down and still see radar data.

                        • 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?!

                                The Wundermap does not show radar images on any computer I own. However they show up on my tablet. This needs to be fixed.

                                • Make it possible to customise units on Wundermap.

                                  e.g.Beaufort or knots instead of km/hr. I mean, km/hr? Seriously?

                                  • Return to Old Model Maps

                                    The most valuable parts of your site are surface and 500mb model maps. This used to be great but is now virtually unusable on WunderMap. Animation doesn't work and it's too clunky to set the parameters. Pleas go back to your old system which was infinitely more user-friendly and informative. I have used this site for years, but will probably have to go to Unisys to get what I need now.

                                      If I'm looking at the Wundermap on my iPhone, under options it lets you see precipitation as in rainfall amounts. Why is this option not available using the website, or am I missing something?

                                      • Remove div id "map_panel_footer"

                                        The "map_panel_footer" reserved space that appears layered atop the Layers menu displays nothing and blocks off a significant portion of the Layers menu. The menu itself isn't fully visible with this in the way, since this reserved space also blocks the browser's scrollbar, so currently the only way for me to access everything below the "Ski" layers is to disable the element in Firefox's Element Inspector (Ctrl-Shift-I).

                                          Hi,

                                          That’s the place where the advertisement appears. If you use an ad blocker, you will see a blank white box.
                                          We will look into ways we can get rid of that box if an ad is not displayed. For now, you can disable the ad blocker and if you don’t want to see the ad, you will be able to click a ‘Close this ad’ link above the ad which will get rid of the ad as well as the box. We also provide an option to purchase ad-free membership.

                                          Let me know if that helps.

                                        • I can't control the speed of the radar animation.

                                          We used to be able to control the speed of the animation… apparently we cannot now. Please restore this function!
