Remember the days when you clicked radar and could see the storm tracks and echo top?
Remember the days Wundermap just worked as expected :)  Do we have any plans to bring back the storm track feature?  This was the best way to see predicted direction and size of storms as well the hail size and percentage.  Please bring this back!

It was always my go to during a storm.. Now it's nothing. What happened? It looks like a change was made that broke it 6 months ago and they never fixed it!

Agreed! Storm tracks was a GREAT feature of Wundermap. What happened to it and can it be restored ASAP?

I see they broke Wundermap even further now.  Used to be able to double-click on the 'colored severe' areas on the map and it would indicate the type of weather and details of the watch or warning.. now it just zooms in.  Have tried this with Chrome, IE, and Firefox all the same.

Is there a bug section or did the person manage this sadly pass away?

Its interesting that you can see the storm tracks in the WU Mobile App called "Storm" but it doesn't seem to exist on Wundermap any longer...  what happened?

Yes the infamous 'Storm Tracks' feature we enjoyed is still broken on Wundermap.   The 'Storm Reports' & 'Tornado'-> All Storms seems to have gone away too.

Due to the failure I was unable to escape yesterdays tornado and am writing this on my new JesusBook Pro Wingtop from behind the Pearly Gates ;)

You may know that Wunderground was purchased by weather.com which is the Weather Channel. Their website is so full of obtrusive ads and sensationalistic BS it's a wonder anyone visiting can actually find real weather happening. Wunderground was broken on purpose to drive viewers to interfaces where we can face more ads, and better their viewership revenue.

I wouldn't even mind IF they had the same features on weather.com, even with ads which they don't.  The  NEXRAD radar that showed the height of the thunderstorms, hail size, tornadoes, direction of storm cells, whether they were mesocyclones, etc. was the absolute best.  Why would they simply kill the feature that made their product unique and stand out without replacing it?  It makes no sense!   GRRRRRR..
May as well just go to my local TV station's weather online if weather.com doesn't care about the quality of their product.  I can get the same generic information locally and keep my business local if I can no longer get the features on wunderground that made their NEXRAD radar info my go-to weather.

Now they are taking the webcams off.  I wonder if Weather Channel is forcing all of this on them

Tom, at this rate, might it be long before they remove this chat forum?  It's unfortunate that I recently downloaded the wunderground app for Android.  I noticed a couple bugs and reported them respectfully, yet no response.  Whoevers court this ball is in is pretty piss poor.

It's hard to let wunderground just die.. as it's a go to for many.  Again, if others have a better app or weblink for what we're looking for as a replacement please post.

Is there a phone number or contact of anyone who can help fix it?  Without this I can only complain on here.

This link to WunderMap seems to have most of the features that were "lost" in the newer mainstream version:

At least you can get storm tracks and a few other features.

I really miss the fire tracking features of Wundermap. The smoke maps were also very useful. Bring it back, please.

IBM owns both wunderground and weather.com. Don't plan on it getting fixed any time soon. IBM does not have the skillset to keep it running correctly.

This place can't go a week without multiple problems. Takes forever to get fixed, if it get fixed at all.
Support is almost non existent.

It looks like WU is slowly disappearing.
