Same here, not just a couple ads but splattered across the pages everywhere. Smashes the readable portion of useful information down to unusable. Shows up on my hourly and 10 day forecast at least. Tried logging off and back on, didn't help.

If I have to look at ads on pages I'm uploading my own data to I'm done after many, many years of uploading to WU. I really hope this is just another glitch with WU.

Use the Adblock Plus web browser extension - it cuts 100% of this trash.   ;)

I had disabled it on the site because it was causing the wundermap to disappear after loading. I re-enabled it and it's not causing the same issue anymore which is great but there's still big blank spaces where the ads appeared scrunching all the forecasts down. Apparently it's being looked into so hopefully a fix is forthcoming.
