WU strikes again!
« on: January 17, 2019, 05:43:29 PM »
  I always go to Intellicast for the local Nexrad data, I liked the detail and the way it was presented along with the options, I went there this morning to see how the local snow storm was doing, I just went back to look at the afternoon data and was greeted with a redirect to WU and telling me "new look with the same maps!"

 BS

  The detail is all gone as apparently they can't spare more than 3 pixels on the map, and of course the usual WU trademarks of slow loading and random "404" errors  :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

Well I didn't use them and didn't want to start using them but since they are taking over intellicast I will make my one rant and move along to something else.  :lol:

Intellicast.com is a part of The Weather Company (weather.com, wunderground.com) so it's not a surprise as they consolidate.

Yeah I've used the Intellicast radar for a long time and also found it the best for me...Looking for a replacement but haven't found anything I'm really thrilled with yet.
