Site Design Update

Hi everyone - we want to give you a quick update on the launch of the new site design. Starting tomorrow, we will be rolling out the site incrementally so we can monitor that everything is optimized from a technical standpoint (page load time etc.). Also we can continue to get more user feedback and make necessary changes before the site goes live to the world in the next few weeks.

Phase one of the roll out tomorrow (Weds in US, Thurs in New Zealand) will be to users in the states of Washington and Arizona as well as everyone accessing the site from New Zealand.

In the meantime, we'd like to hand you back to our Creative Director, Jennifer Potter who has some more insights to share on the decisions that were made as part of the redesign process:


Hi again, Jennifer here. I wanted to take the opportunity to communicate some of the reasons we’ve undertaken such an extensive redesign. In my last post, I addressed the reasons behind many of the visual changes (and thanks to your feedback we’re still honing them). This time I’d like to get more into the organization and interaction changes. I’ll start with this phrase that’s popped up a bit over the past few months:

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

Well I’ll tell you, there are quite a few things about wunderground.com that are broken. We’ve accumulated a fairly large backlog of fixes over the years. I don’t want to bore you with all of the details, but I’ll try to sum it up with an anecdote. Matt, our UX Manager, and I were conducting a user test with an avid pilot. When I asked him if he’d been to our aviation maps, he said, “Yes, just once.” It turns out that he had stumbled upon a link to that section via another site, and had never found it again. It’s not his fault. Frankly, navigating our site isn’t easy. True to form, we kept unlocking new data sets for years, but since we didn’t have a plan for adding new sections, we just tacked them on where we could. I’ve been with Weather Underground for four years, and I’m still discovering new data and tools. I think you might have to work here for a decade before you can know where everything is. (I bet Aaron, aka WunderYakuza, knows where everything is.) So not only will we be making sections like Aviation Maps easier to find, we’ll be working with users, to ensure that the data there is as useful as possible.

The fact is, if we’re honest with ourselves, a lot of our products could be more user-friendly. We took a stab at it two years ago. We did a lot of things right, but we made some mistakes, and a lot of those mistakes could have been avoided. For one, we outsourced the design. We just weren’t big enough to handle the whole thing ourselves. And no matter how talented the company that did it was, they just weren’t wundergrounders.

But we’re doing it differently this time. We’re doing it all in house. We’re talking with you, and more importantly, we’re listening. We won’t be able to meet everyone’s expectations--what works for one person may not work for another--but we’ll continue to increase the usability, speed, and quality of all of our products, and we’ll try to make them work for as many of you as possible. We have high standards here, and we know you do, too.

A good example of how we’re moving forward can be found in the new Forecast section on the main weather page. You used to have to scroll down past the Current Data, Almanac, and Extended Forecast section if you wanted to get an idea of the hourly conditions. If you wanted a comprehensive hourly view, you had to click off the page altogether. But with the new graph view, you get all that information right on the same page, plus you get far more granular data. And you get to customize which data sets are displayed. (We default the graph to temp, precip, and wind, but I, for one, like to turn all of the data on and get the full weather story for the day.) That said, we understand that the graph is not for everyone, so we’ve included tabular and descriptive views right there with it. So not only do we give you more data, we let you choose how you want to see it. And we didn’t stop there. We also added precip type to the graph. But that’s just one improvement. There are many more to come.

One thing that I want to be very clear about is that we have absolutely no intention of dumbing anything down. Weather Underground users are the smartest weather consumers. We know that, and it is our core belief that we should continue to give you access to as much useful weather data as possible, so we’re certainly not planning to take any away. As the ever clever Riah, Video Producer here at Weather Underground, so succinctly put it, “We’re not simplifying. We’re organizing.”

This new design is not the culmination of all of our hard work; it is the beginning. We will continue to listen to your feedback and make improvements.

I want to say thank you to all of you who’ve given us specific constructive criticism. I know change ruffles feathers, but the only way we can address the problems with our site is if we know specifically what is and isn’t working for you and why. So, please, keep the feedback coming!

I have to agree with the phrase from Jennifer...the old site was great and easy to navigate...now, not so much. Doing something for the sake of doing something is really not a way to do things....If you thought you had problems, fix those but to re-do a whole site...and yes, I gave it a couple of months and really, it sucks now. I used to recommend this site to everyone...now not so much.....specially if looking at it on a cell phone, not very user friedly, not very visual, not easy to navigate......and your answer above really does not answer why you changed......

The new dashboard is nice for the weather stations, and i see you fixed the weekly report to be like the old one. Why not change the monthly and yearly to graph exact figures instead of triangles for the maximum for the days? I think most computers can handle the smaller graphing and better looking results.

My weather page is responsive to my location. When I'm at work the main weather station & nearby weather stations are those closest to the office and when I'm at home the one nearest to the house comes up. I like that!

There is some in that I really would like you guys two fixs



Can you plzs fix the quote two where it is not quoting some one you may have on the ignore list. I mean the hole point in having the ignore list so you be able two ignore user and there commutes but if you have a user on the ignore list and some quote it then that user will still see that name and there comments so can you plzs make the quote and the ignore list a little more user friendly or re move the quote all together


Right now the ignored user and quoting don't mix vary well two getter but they may if you do some tweaks two it

I'm running IE11 and am not having any problems getting to the blogs. Everything looks much better on IE than Chrome or FireFox. The type is real good for my old eyes now. I think I did tweak it to LARGE TYPE.

I feel it is still more cumbersome than the old site since it takes more clicks and scrolls to get where you want to go. Much better than it was at first-Keep up the improvements.

Please let users hide or move sections. On iPhone screen the graph is always off screen. I would move or hide Radar/Satellite/etc.


Our iPhone app has that level of customization - you can drag and drop the modules and a new version will be released next week that allows you to delete sections off your main screen that you don't want - we will work on better customization of the main site but can't promise anything too soon!

This ADD-WU is just so hard to use, I can't deal with it. I don't find it intuitive at all. At least with WUclassic I can still get a reasonable forecast.


We're sorry you feel this way - we now present 3 different options to view the forecast in whatever way you prefer (graph, table or descriptive). We have obviously carried out extensive user testing and most people have loved this flexibility - but we appreciate your concerns and we want to keep everyone happy - especially such loyal users as you.

Oh joy. I'm one of your unhappy, unenthusiastic Washington guinea pigs. I am really fighting the urge to revert from NuWU back to WU Classic. And trying really hard to be constructive in this comment.

So how about allowing me the option of HIDING sections of the Forecast Page that I don't care about, so I can get faster loads and not have to do so much scrolling to see what I do care about?

For example, I would love to be able to HIDE Nearby Weather Stations, Air Quality, and Today's Extremes? And I would love to be able to see just the 7-Day Forecast Table without also having to look at that Hour-by-Hour listing.

Put the Main Menu at the top instead of at the bottom! You are making me scroll around way too much to navigate the site.

Remember how I zoomed out on the radar map and don't make me do it every time I come to the forecast page. The default setting is so close as to be useless in showing what is coming. I can look out the window to see what is here.

Oh, and I can't believe Flickr is actually faster to load than the Main Gallery now. BTW, the random-sized thumbnails are really hard to look at.


More customization of the forecast page is something we hope to focus more on asap - thanks again for all your useful feedback. Page load time is something we are continually looking to optimize and while we can't promise to answer all of your other valid concerns immediately we will be making constant iterations to all pages based on all of our user feedback (which we may be getting a little bit of in the coming weeks!).

The new homepage defaults to the closest weather station to the center of my home town. In my case, it is not my PWS. Is there a way to have it default to my station instead?


There is no way to do that right now but it's a great suggestion so we'll add it to our list! Thanks for the feedback

New version is mostly OK & I'll get used to it. Thank you for leaving links to blogs, photos, etc. at the top of the screen instead of only at the very bottom. One thing - what happened to the 10-day forecast? or am I missing something? That is one of the features I used most often.

I agree it would be nice to be able to hide some sections or have them displayed differently. For instance, I don't care to see a lot of space in a prominent location devoted to US temperature records and world's coldest/warmest temperatures.

One thing I do NOT like in the blogs is the Reader Comments box at the beginning of the comments list. I think most of us post something after reading the most recent comments, so it makes sense to have the comments box at the bottom instead of having to go back to the top.

Some part of the weather pages seem slow on Firefox on desktop computer. Preview seems a little odd on my tablet, but I need to check it out further.

Here's what I meant when I said, "WU is mangled, completely unusable under IE 8" in comment #31.



I don't think that it should be mandatory for new websites to support obsolete browsers. But, I do think it's reasonable to try to help out folks who are stuck. Redirecting them to the Classic site might be a good compromise.

1) As another beta commenter reported, WU is mangled, completely unusable under IE 8. (Changing security settings doesn't fix it, either.) It works fine with IE 11. While I realize that IE 8 is being desupported, WU developers, you might want to take a look at it anyway. Perhaps you could redirect IE8 users to WU Classic, so that people don't think that the WU website is defunct. Yeah, it really does look that bad. I'll post a screen shot later.

2) In beta, I'm unable to preview a comment and then edit it afterward. Once the comment has been previewed, the comment box will no longer accept edits. This is on Win7, Firefox and Chrome.

o Enter Comment -> Post Comment - works
o Enter Comment -> Post Comment -> Edit Comment -> Post Comment - works
o Enter Comment -> Preview Comment - Comment box freezes, cannot edit or post anything

Perhaps the blog was created elsewhere and pasted to wu. Who knows? I just know it happens all the time with magazine article quotes that look fine pasted into a comment until/unless a comment is modified. And happens if I type something in Word and copy it to a blog entry or a wu comment box, and then go back in to modify. I figure it's something we have to live with.
Okay, I copied this from above. Let's see what happens when I modify comment. "I am in classic right now - btw."

I noticed when using IE you have to resize the page or everything that is normally on the right of the blog is at the bottom .. resizing the page brings them back to the right side of page again ..

not sure if people seeing this realize the page needs to be resized in IE .. and this might be some of the problem thinking IE is incompatible ..

Looks like I'll have to use classic at work. Either IE8 or the firewall they use here disagrees rather vehemently with the new design, and renders it unusable. My guess would be the former.

Looks great on my home PC though, I actually like the changes to the forecast page quite a bit.

Thank you for the feedback! We've got quite a backlog of fixes, and
the dev team is plugging away trying to improve speed and
functionality. We need to prioritize, so you may not see the changes
you'd like right away, but that doesn't mean they won't be addressed.
We will continue to work with our users because we know that's the
path to making truly great products.

I want to take a moment to address any concerns about our community
tools--blogs and photos--taking a back seat to our weather tools. We
have a team dedicated solely to enhancing our blog, photo, and PWS
contributors' experience. They are actively fixing bugs, updating
code, and improving the functionality of our community tools. We see
our community as the heart and soul of Weather Underground. We value
it immensely. We know it's what makes Weather Underground special, and
will continuously work to support our community.
Well, that's nice, and thanks for letting us know. Also please understand wunder photographers and wunder bloggers "enjoy weather and the outdoors" which is what brought us to wu and makes us stick and stay. We use your weather tools, so we're watching those tools also.

Re: This part of what your wrote... "We see our community as the heart and soul of Weather Underground. We value it immensely. We know it's what makes Weather Underground special, and will continuously work to support our community."

Hehehe. You might also want to allow modification of comments without inserting goofy characters. (See comment #2) I know, that's an old bug, but it would be nice to have it fixed sometime.
That happens every time you paste in something in that was, for instance, composed in Word and not in the comment box and then go back and modify.

Well, the new site rolled out for me here in Arizona.  I haven't played with it much, but so far it seems to work well with Google Chrome.
One thing I already miss, is the ability to come back to a blog the next day, and quickly find where I left off by the pluses or minuses I have left.  Minus is now gone, and the plus doesn't change color anymore after you click it.
If you are going to get all fancy, how about a smiley or two?  We need a happy face, a sad face, and a face palm for Dr. Rood's blog.

The new site design is visually cleaner, though (like other recent site redesigns I've noticed) it appears to be aimed at mobile device users. As a PC-only user, I find that trend frustrating. However, I appreciate the work that went into the design, and I expect I'll appreciate its virtues fully in time. I do very much wish I could access the classic design, though. I've tried, and the new design came up instead. Please make the classic design accessible for those who wish or need to use it. Thanks!
