The New weather.com Homepage: More Local, Easier to Navigate

October 7, 2013

The Weather Company launched an all-new weather.com homepage Monday.

The redesigned homepage offers a beautiful new approach that makes it easier for you to find information, particularly your local forecast and stories affecting your area.

“We’ve been hard at work on our next evolution of the homepage and have completely re-imagined it all based on user feedback,” said Cameron Clayton, president of the digital division at The Weather Company. “The increased local relevance and re-imagined news storytelling creates an experience that prioritizes the most important local information for our customers, and exploring our exclusive coverage is easier than ever before.”

Among the new features:

  • Local Information – You'll get the local forecast, alerts, traffic information and local news directly from the homepage.
  • Responsive Design – The new weather.com works on any screen size from a tablet to a huge monitor, auto-adjusting to give you the best experience.
  • Simpler Navigation – The new navigation bar follows you on every page and predicts your current location when needed.
  • Easier to Explore – The homepage is now broken out by topic and adds the easy-to-use navigation bar.

In the video above, weather.com's Matt Sampson shows you how to get the most of the new features. Check out how it works by heading to weather.com.

It doesn't look much like hurricane, but the Hurricane Hunters measured surface winds around 75 mph on Monday evening and Tuesday morning in Hurricane Cristobal, making it the third hurricane of the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season. These missions proved the value of hurricane hunter flights, since there is no way that we would have known Cristobal was a hurricane based on satellite data.

However, this effect is not included in the IPCC report issued Friday morning, which means the estimates of how Earth's climate will change are likely on the conservative side.
