Is there another website that has weather similar to the old classic view? I can not get what I need from the new view, on weather underground.

Sigh. Classic is gone, never to return, at least with the current management and staff in charge. They don't understand there are some of us that want easily accessible weather information without all the glitz and politics.

Weather Underground has followed its parent The Weather Channel. I can remember when The Weather Channel actually had weather on it instead of hour long shows. WU with the new site has a greatly diminished weather content.

I've started using other sources for my weather forecasts and radar. WU and TWC were great sources for weather information, but sadly, not anymore.

I much prefer the old site -- but I suppose that has gone the way of the dodo bird --- Would it be possible to incorporate the temps being shown in both F and C at the same time as was an option on the old site? Thank you

Enable the classic view, new version is too cumbersome.
Just my view, but I will find another program.

What happened to the classic view? If it don't come back, going another weather web site. Enough of their games. In this case change is bad. Bring back classic view! This is like when Coca'Cola made coke classic!

Is it just me or does classic.wunderground now default to the new one? I won't be using it anymore if this is the case.

The new classic doesn't work for me. I like the weather at a glance, nothing fancy, just weather. Bring back the original classic!

I really like Weather Underground's forecasts and presentation. Or I did until today. After the new format was introduced, I had opted to use the classic view. Now, suddenly it's gone. Is this a punishment? Did I do something wrong? Put it back, please!!!

I'll have to agree with many of my fellow users. Classic gave me the information I needed and wanted in the format that suited me best. I don't want lots of cutesy news items and expert opinion. To paraphrase a famous old radio/TV detective, "...the facts ma'am, just the facts..." (Joe Friday {Jack Webb}, Dragnet). Unless things change back, I probably won't renew either.

I don't like the political ads on the new page! Begging for aid to Nepal has NOTHING to do with my weather. I'll be moving back to NWS and Accuweather.

There is ZERO room for politics in REPORTING the weather.....PERIOD!

PLEASE PUT CLASSIC WUNDERGROUND BACK LIKE IT WAS. THE ALTERNATE VERSION IS TOO CUMBERSOM. ACCUWEATHER IS NOT ACCURATE, AND THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IS ABOUT AS BAD AS THE NEW VERSION OF WUNDERGROUND.

1000% agree,.. when I go to check the weather, the page never downloads! It just sits with the little colorful fancy wheel going around and around. One time I left it and it went on for about 15 minutes, til I closed it down. Maybe it will open up when it feels like it. Just because you can add some cool looking features.... it does not make the website better. The old weather website was the best on the internet. I said WAS the best. Now it just like all the other weather sites, full of junk, clutter, and stuff a normal person would never use.

I agree. Classic is the best format. If more than enough people write and send Emails to Wunderground, stating that Classic is the best format, then maybe they will put Classic back in the near future. I will be missing Classic myself.

Classic view please! The upgrade has actually been a downgrade. I prefer weather underground for all my weather needs but have found myself using other sites/apps. The new look and usability is horrible. It's not that I mind change, but it does have to be change for the better....

I have tried several times to get to the classic site as per you instructions and have had no positive results. It seems that when you have a very good product you just can not leave well enough alone. Please bring the classic site back. If I can not get on the classic site I will not be renewing my subscription. Thank you for you help.

Its still there...

Quoting 72. CDAVID:

PLEASE RESTORE THE CLASSIC MAP NEXRAD THAT DISPLAYS INDIVIDUAL CELL OF STORMS AND A VECTOR WITH DIRECTION AND TIME
THIS IS A USEFUL TOOL WHEN WEATHER APPROACHES.

THE NEW FORMAT IS NOT USER FRIENDLY AND IS LIMITED AS IT WILL NOT ALLOW CHART ANIMATION AND CELL VECTOR INFORMATION SIMULTANEOUSLY.

PERHAPS THIS IS OPERATOR ERROR, AGAIN NOT FRIENDLY TO THE USER.
PLEASE consider modification of the "new " display to allow presentation of these features.
Thanks,

I have to say, the new site is far less usable than the old site. I know the product team put a lot of effort into the redesign. Sadly it feels like they forgot to hold focus groups to see if there were any concerns that the end users have before rolling it out. It takes far more clicks to get the same information with NUWU than classic, and the quality of information is not nearly what it used to be.

Since I began using WU, the quality of information and easy of access are what made WU my site of choice. I'm now seeking another source.

Quoting 70. Neuro76:

I have been a paying member of Wunderground since 2001. I always preferred it to other sites because of it's powerful yet minimal interface. Have lots of data is important to me, and I now find it much harder to get than ever before. Please allow users to use the old interface. I do not want to stop supporting this site monetarily after 13yrs, but I am strongly considering it after this "update."

This afternoon, at least, I have been unable to post a blog comment using NUWU. The little "I'm thinking" wheely thing just keeps on spinning until Firefox times it out. WUclassic, which is normally fast on my computer, has been a bit slower than usual, too. It took 27 seconds to post one comment. Methinks maybe things aren't running so smoothly now that the "final" product has been rolled out.

Info not readily available. As one of you said, cartoon like. Too gimmicky. Not intuitive. I liked Classic but mostly used the version before this "new and improved" version. I'll use Classic again and begin the search for some site that gives me the info I need at a glance and in useful format. Wish me luck.

This is horrid, if i wanted a cartoon interface i would have let my kids have at it. This is not only unfair to those viewing it but to those who provide your data. Turn this beta crap off its hurting my eyes, and where are my links to weather radio and such. I didn't spent 500.00 putting up this stuff to not have it included. If i must deal with the cartoon then put the link back on.

Thats why it is still in Beta..


Then perhaps they shouldn't have rolled it out for all of Washington, Arizona and New Zealand. That's an awful lot of people for a "beta test". Beta should be reserved for those of us who are voluntarily doing testing, IMO. There are still way too many things that aren't working.

Quoting 61. DataPilot:
I would be surprised if the number of Classic users doesn't increase, at least initially. It's very unfortunate (to put it politely) that WU picked Washington State to be one of their guinea pigs. I have faith that the developers will eventually get the new site working, but holy cow, it is not ready for prime time yet!

I have been trying to use beta whenever I can. However, there are some functions that are still so broken that I have to keep going back to old WU.

Hang in there. I hope you don't leave completely.

I did finally switch to NUWU, but I can't deal with their latest downgrade. And cussed them out on the WUproductteam blog when I couldn't get back to Classic this morning. Thankfully, they fixed it so that Washingtonians can go back to the best and classic version.

Wouldn't it be interesting to know how much Classic usage increases as they roll out the Beta into ADD-WU (the newest WU that causes users to develop attention deficit disorder after looking at all the shiny objects and gaudy distractions)?
