Wunderground.com sold to The Weather Channel Companies

It's true. After 17 years as an independent company, Weather Underground has been sold, and will now be part of The Weather Channel Companies (TWCC.) As one of the founders of Weather Underground, I am excited about embarking upon this new chapter in our company's history. Having the infrastructure, resources, and content of The Weather Channel Companies will enable wunderground to create some great new products, and improve the quality and reliability of our existing content. We will now be called Weather Underground, LLC, and will maintain the wunderground.com web site as it is.


Figure 1. The original seven founders of wunderground.com, plus our first employee, circa 1998. In front, from left to right: Chris Schwerzler, Jeff Masters, Jeff Ferguson. In back: Dave Brooks, Alan Steremberg, Perry Samson, Chuck Prewitt, and Mike MacDonald.

The wild ride that began in 1995
Back in 1995, when the newly created commercial Internet put up for sale domains with a ".com" designation, and Weather Underground, Inc. became the world's first commercial weather web site, I could not have anticipated the wild ride that brought us to where we are at today. We registered the 2,000th domain ever taken, "wunderground.com", in 1995, missing registering "weather.com " by a month. Later that year, a group of executives from The Weather Channel visited us in Ann Arbor, inquiring on how we might work together. No sale resulted, but over the years, The Weather Channel and Weather Underground have had a number of meetings to discuss a possible merger. Many other companies have inquired about buying us, but we have always opted to stay independent, in order to nurture our creative, alternative weather web site and keep breaking new ground. The company's growth was slow at first, since we never took venture capital money. We grew from 6 employees in 1999 to 20 in 2009. But in the past three years, Weather Underground entered into a rapid period of growth that saw our staff more than double to 57 people. With a swelling user base around the globe, and with demands for our services to be made available across so many new digital platforms like mobile phones and tablets, the board recognized the need for an even greater injection of resources, and the decision was made to merge with The Weather Channel Companies.

How will the merger with The Weather Channel improve wunderground?
The Weather Channel is committed to keeping the Weather Underground brand and the web site in its current form. Weather Underground CEO Alan Steremberg will remain in charge, and our meteorologists and developers will continue to create the ground-breaking weather products that we're renowned for. The plan is to make both wunderground.com and weather.com stronger, by sharing content and infrastructure. Many Weather Underground features, such as our Personal Weather Station data, WunderMap, and my blog, are scheduled to also appear on the weather.com web site in the coming months. My blog's main home will continue to be wunderground.com, and I have been asked to continue to write the same variety of science-based posts on hurricanes, extreme weather, and climate change that I've provided since 2005. I enjoy communicating weather science, and am pleased I will be able to do this for both wunderground and The Weather Channel, which has an audience about three times as large as wunderground's.



Figure 2. One my favorite wunderphotos: a rainbow in Cyprus. With over 1.5 million wunderphotos uploaded, the wunderground community has helped make the web site far better than the employees could have done on their own.

I'm not sure how I feel about the buyout. I guess it will all depend on what happens with this blog. I rarely post, but I've been following it for more years than I've actually been a member. I first found WU back in 2002, and the blog in about 2005 or 2006. The regular posters have helped me to learn and understand more about weather than I would have imagined. My thanks go out to all of you for being willing to teach others about what makes our weather happen the way it does.

Fireworks have been canceled across most of South and South Central Wisconsin. No burn up across the area too. So bad firefighter units are driving across their respected areas making sure it's observed. Not to be mean; the big one is out there for Wisconsin. Peshtigo fire of 1871 if anyone is looking for a scary Wisconsin fire story. One of the scariest in history but it's also has a couple miracle stories in it too which blow the imagination.


Same day as the great Chicago fire by the way

Long time lurker here.

It used to be that TWC lagged WU on tropical interests by 2-3 days. Then about a year ago it seem that as soon as something was mentioned here on the Dr. Master's Blog TWC was talking about it on their Tropical Update.

I think I used to have TWC on 24/7 ... reading, doing homework, sleeping until they started with all the special programming crap. I liken the demise of TWC to that of MTV. Pretty soon I'll have to wake up a 3am to watch 2-3 hours of actual weather.

Congrats to Dr. M and the WU crew for their success and sale of the company. I hope WU stays true to it's roots but under the umbrella of TWCC I have some doubts.


Same here. Long time lurker and have greatly enjoyed staying in the background and reading as I feel some of the more experienced people here give up info that the "prime time" people can't.

Congrats on the sale. Lets face it this is why most people own their own business. Make it successful and hope to make some good money in the long run. I certainly hope this blog continues uninterrupted for years but if it doesn't we will all know within hours what the replacement is.

Congrats to Dr. Masters on reaching this stage.

Unbelievable news today! Wow, this merger come out of left field, or what! My weather porn going mainstream?

Some people might have me on their ignore list, some might think I'm a troll (god forbid), but I have been lurking on here with occasional post since the '05 hurricane season. I really like this site the way it is now so I hope any changes will be for the better.



No, it's not a merger, it's a buyout. Assuming Dr. Masters and the other folks at WU survive the buyout, they'll be mere employees of a vastly larger organization. Most people who watch TWC have never heard of Dr. Masters and could care less about things like derechos if they're not headed for their house. They are waiting for the next cute dog story and whatever skirt is randomly waving her hand across the back projection map. Sorry, folks, but that's the way it is. If you've ever been part of a company that's been swallowed by a whale, you'll know what I mean.

Well, I sure hope WU can maintain its editorial independance. No doubt they'll be a special "Cantore Filter" installed, but aside from his being the meteorological equivalent of a pharma salesman, he's not a bad guy. Speaking of independance, July 4 is a big fireworks day (sorry about stating the obvious) but...with drought over much of the southwest, plains much of the Southeast and midwest, and given the forecast, the wildfire prospects are a bit alarming.

If I had to fathom a guess, based on purchases of this nature in the past. Jeff's take was probably between the range of 2-4 large and I don't mean thousand. I know he's not going to tell us, and I understand that completely. But good for him, that buys a lot of peace of mind for his family and his kids family's for decades to come.

Fire Danger in Austin Tx. area is very high : PM CDT

Wildfire In Austin A 'Real And Present Danger'

The Austin Firefighters Association is warning city leaders about the "big one" - the fire that they won't be able handle, especially in the hills in West Austin.

Almost a year has passed since the worst wildfire in Texas history decimated the town of Bastrop - 1600 homes destroyed and two people dead. And fire experts believe Austin is a sitting duck.

"We haven't seen the big one yet in Austin, but we will," said Bob Hicks, who heads up the Austin Firefighters Association.

Hicks equates the West Austin hills to those in Colorado Springs, which was overtaken just last week by a devastating, fast moving fire.

"You really will have a situation where you have a flame front heading towards Austin that is 2 to 5 miles wide," said Hicks.

Hicks is urging city leaders to create a Wildland Division within the Austin Fire Department, because he says putting out wildfires is very different than structure fires. The Texas Forest Service has resources, but Hicks says the city can't wait for the state.

"The dirty little secret about wildland fires when they get to that size, is you don't put them out, you direct them towards lighter fuels until they go out on their own," said Hicks.

Fuel is a huge issue. Hicks warns the winter rain fed all of the vegetation, which is now drying out, creating a perfect environment for a wildfire.

"This is a real and present danger that the citizens of Austin need to know about," said Hicks.

Another factor that makes Austin's risk even greater than that of Colorado: the hills here are full of cedar and juniper trees, which contain oil that literally explodes when touched by a flame.

The Austin Firefighters Association is also pushing for an additional fire station along the high risk Loop 360 corridor, disappointed, that at this point, it is not included in the city's proposed bond package
