In general, the ads will not change though we are making an effort to make the site less cluttered and more appealing to the eye. Glad everybody here is on the same page wink.gif thanks

We'll let you know if there is a beta before the release. The old and new site will run in parallel for a little while.

Looks slick, much cleaner and easier to find what you want. Fixes my biggest gripe with the Accuweather site. Looking forward to the release date!

The website should launch Sunday 2/28 or Monday 3/1 so get used to it today and if you have any questions as to where things moved, let me know here.

You know, I used to have everything I wanted available at a glance, needing at most a quick move of the mouse wheel. Now I have to flip through a bunch of different views to find the same information.

So, did you decide to can the entire old format or can we have the one page of useful local information available at a glance back?

Thanks.

How about a format that has all the same info on one page like the old one? Where did that one go hide?

Thanks.

Definately faster than the older version. I had to keep using Google Chrome when things got slow. It kind of reminds me of the Weather Channel site layout. laugh.gif

However...

There are things I miss (or I'm not finding them).

I liked the simplicity of the table layout for weather data (like the weather stats for this month and the previous month). I could simply copy/paste it into excel (without having to format anything) to keep a running track of total average temps. Now I don't see it, so I'm guessing that whole thing is now Premium Membership only, including the this/last month data.

I also liked the quick rundown (weather graphic, hi and lo temp) for the next 15 days. Quick and easy to scroll down and look at. The temperature chart (HIs and LOs overlapping the average temp), and average monthly temperature chart were something I looked at frequently and liked.

Yes, it would be nice to have a "Classic View".

Just my personal opinion, but to me, large graphics and tables (i.e., weather calendar) that takes up the entire page with a mix of big and small font sizes = cluttered.

What do you mean by "all the same info"?

Good news! wink.gif Both of these are still available in the "Month: List" format. I explain today on my blog how to get to them.

So that's where it was hiding!

Although I do miss the heating/cooling degree days (I can still calculate those at least...), and it's not the easiest copy/paste format (I had my excel all set up for the old table layout. Fit nicely). Oh well, at least I can view historical data for more than 2 months, so I guess it's a tradeoff.

Not sure... they will probably move to the new design this week or next week.
