    • Go back to the old format.

      New format is less than useful I may have to find another weather page.

      • Horrible WU site now!

        Horrible WU with these changes to radars!!!

        Go back to WU from 3 weeks ago in November from this horrible mess you have switched to. Went from a site I recommend to pure junk. Really SUCKS now and bad change on your part.

          • Monthly averages for a city's climate

            At least provide a link to a site that provides monthly climate averages--temps highs and lows, precipitation, snowfall. Really miss this feature.

            • Low temp forecast for day x should not be for day x+1.

              If the forecast low for Sunday is 32, then that value should apply to Sunday morning, not Sunday night/Monday morning.

              • The old animated radar map loaded in seconds. I timed the new map at just under 2 minutes to load. Awful response time. Am switching.

                No map should take longer than 25 seconds to load on a 3G network, which is most of rural America.

                • You got it bass ackwards!

                  Ladies and Gentlemen -

                  First let me tell you a bit about myself. I'm a retired snowbird. I vacation in Canada in the Summer when temperatures are mild (none of this +40̊ C stuff), then in Autumn I migrate southward and vacation for the Winter in the USA's Sunbelt, again where the temperatures are mild (none of this -40̊ C stuff!). Come Spring, I migrate back northward. Repeat as necessary.

                  The reason this is important to you is that I almost religiously use the Weather Underground website as my gold standard for the coming days' forecasts, and often plan my…

                  • How about the page doesn't refresh itself constantly and freeze up my browser

                    Even when I turn off Rapid Fire, the page still refreshes constantly. It interrupts video playback in other tabs on Firefox, and generally causes slowdowns with Firefox. Wunderground.com never did this before the last overhaul of the site, and I don't understand why the whole page needs to reload every time something changes. The refresh also interrupts me when I am viewing the expanded graph for the forecast, and again, this is even with Rapid Fire turned off. That setting seems to make no difference at all for the behavior of the site.

                      • Show divergence from forecast?

                        In the 10-day forecast graph, I notice that some of the lines persist to the left of the vertical line indicating the current time. I think this is a good thing, and I notice that not *all* the lines persist, which makes me wonder why.

                        Of course, data to the left of "now" is no longer a forecast, but is a record of that forecast, which is of some value, if only for the curious (of which I am sure you have a few in your audience).

                        I don't know how you would do this with graphic clarity, or what…

                        • Very sluggish compared to the classic site which works fine.

                          Your website redesign runs very sluggishly compared to the classic site. With Javascript enabled, it is as slow as molasses. With Javascript disabled, half or more of the data disappears. The classic site runs fine with or without Javascript enabled. You need to tweak your new site quite a bit before I will ever use it at all. Why keep reinventing the wheel?

                          • Back to the original Unted states Map

                            Why did you do that to the United States Map. The original United States Map with the Crosses to show all the locations for Nexrad Radar for that area was great. Now you can not navigate to an area in the US it is hidden so to speak. Put the old United States Map back PLEAAASE.. I love this web site. Respectfully submitted Ralph Fondario

                              the sever weather button used to give access to a page(s) that showed the tropical storms as they crossed the oceans. I can't find that info with the new format.

                              • SIMPLIFY the design, both visually and technically!

                                All too often now I end up looking at partial pages (like the attachment) because some part either takes forever to load, or doesn't load at all. Sometimes it's a piece of the page waiting on something from Google. Sometimes it's waiting on something from your own server(s). Let's get back to a more basic, less dynamic design PLEASE!

                                  I live in a smaller town (99347) and when there is precipitation on the radar I can't tell where the city is anymore. I know it is at or near the center of the map but it would be nice to see a placemark or something. Thanks!
