What happened to all the BEST features of Wundermap????

  • Question
  • Updated 2 days ago
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!

https://www.weathertap.com/ This one really looks promising but you have to sign up and after so long you have to pay, Try it out I can't pay for anything on a retired budget SMH. If I really like it it will make me ill when I have to pay.

I can certainly understand the need for Wundermap, especially where there are many severe storms.  Thank goodness I don't live in an area like that.  I have a PWS and the information from it use to be uploaded about every minute and now it's uploaded about every 30 minutes.  A lot can happen within 30 minutes, especially with spring and summer severe storms  popping up.  They also down graded their format for PWS.

$7.95/month for weathertap?  Wow.  No thanks, I have enough corporations already bleeding me with this latest way they've discovered of squeezing more blood out of my Social Security turnip by charging monthly "subscription" fees for everything.  I had to ditch Amazon Prime and Microsoft Office when they started doing this.
The well is dry.  I'll have to stick with a free weather service... or one I already pay for that's included with my cable TV or internet provider fees.

Just a comment.

If any of you are not familiar with ZoomRadar.

You should take a look. Good stuff. Great radar and many features for us who like weather.

http://zoomradar.com/

Spread the word on different channels here if you like it.

There's actually a storm chaser right not posting live video from his auto.

Sad, but it seems WU and The Weather Channel have ignored our continuing request for some type of communication.

I did check out zoomradar. Looks like during a hurricane or something it would be good. They also want you to pay.

Probably this is a technical problem on your side, rather than the windy site.

I really wanted to like Windy.  I downloaded the app, created an account, everything.  The map just wasn't accurate.  There I was, staring out my window at a downpour.  Wunderground showed yellow radar of the rain right over my street, Windy just displayed a light blue haze, 8 mins old, and not over my street yet.  I kept refreshing hoping it would catch up, but too late, the weather had already moved on.

unfortunately I've noticed much of the same. 'Intellicast' seems to be working great so far.

I switched to the Weather Channel tonight and was totally surprised by what I saw.  There are probably many others that know this, but Weather Channel is now Weather Underground.  Hmm!

@Terry Forshee

Did you report this on the Windy community?

Radar layers are still heavily in development. Help them make improvements.

http://www.intellicast.com/ is about the best you can get for now. I use it but you can only do like 24 hour, but 90% of the time it is right on. Just had a large rain her and it was right on.

Also try http://www.livewxradar.com/ when it comes up on firat page scroll down for options of more maps. Playing with this one and during a Hurricane should be a good one.
