I noticed today that Wundermap was updated. It looks very different. The stations show bolder dark lines for wind direction. Also I can't figure out the new tick marks on the speed indicator line. Nothing is a straight line. So they all have the little tick mark. I think this may be a mistake as even 0 Mph wind has a tick mark. Then there are some wind indicators that have a triangle. That is totally new. I like the old way better.

The map does seem to be more responsive. So maybe that is an improvement.

I haven't messed with other layers or features. Maybe there is more new stuff to discover.

Yes, it is certainly not clear what wind speed is being shown. According to the guide it should be mph, with the short sidebar representing 5mph and the long one 10 mph,  but that is clearly not what is being shown. Even the km/hr from the raw input data doesn't seem to fit entirely.  On the alternative map at www.wunderground.com/auto/preview it is clearly mph which is being shown. It will be interesting to see what rainfall the new map shows, as that was always a bit strange as well.

Accessing the map without logging in gives me the nicest solid sky blue screen.  The Tyson chicken ad in the lower right corner is working great, too!  (I wonder if they've had a recall lately?  :-k )

I'm convinced this update was prematurely rolled out. It just has to be wrong. I don't like it. Zero wind should not have an indicator line. Hopefully they will fix this soon.

Well at least Full Screen Weather map is still showing up as the old way.

Just tried it again and it worked.  The indicator line with 0mph winds might be the predominate wind direction from recent history...???  You're going to have little wisps of a breeze all along even when mostly it's a calm day.   :-k

All the stations show 30 inHg on the individual popup square. The page layout still isn't right. The drop down menu still has a hanger. There's still a big gap at the top of the page.

Looks like they fixed Wundermap. The new UI seems to be working and properly reporting wind speeds with the wind barbs. No more crazy wind barbs as before. Glad they fixed the glitch in their new UI. That was definitely rolled out before it was ready. Precipitation also seems to be working (it showed all zeros before).

It is anything but "fixed" for me. The icons show no wind at all when i have wind readings.

Icon should show no wind between 0 and 4 Mph. The first barb only shows up when you have 5 Mph consistent and not gusting. But between 1 and 4 Mph you should see the main indicator. What I'm noticing is that there is only a problem for 1 to 4 Mph where it indicates no wind.

I guess before it was over reporting winds and now it is under reporting.
