The look is better than the classic (which was fairly cluttered).

What I'm not fond of is the way the forecasts are now presented with details only one day at a time (until the last entry, which presents all the future forecast days).
Also, they aren't using 'night' icons for the night displays, and somewhere about 3 forecast periods from the end, they stop displaying forecasted temperatures .. guess the website overflowed their actual forecast period :)

Certainly has been a challenge adapting the WU-forecast.php script to adapt to the new site design and fix-up their lack of night icons and remove the bogus forecast entries at the end of their forecast period.

Best regards,
