"I love Weather Underground!"

What do you like best?

Weather Underground (Wunderground/Wunderweather) has been my favorite way to get weather updates, warnings, forecasts, etc. for years. Its interface is easy to use, collaborative, aesthetic and includes things like moon cycles, how many hours of sun per day, and you can easily go from one weather station to another.

What do you dislike?

One of my only quips with Weather Underground (Wunderweather) is its radar detection. If you go to the screen with radar, either online or on the mobile app, it seems to always buffer and doesn't go that far into the future. The main reason I usually want to see radar (living in SW Colorado) is to see storms coming through, or what type of precip will happen, which the weather forecast will offer, but the radar won't show that well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I love wunderweather and use it both personally and professionally. I will say I like its interface and ease of use, but if you're going SOLELY on correct weather patterns, I would use a different service, like NOAA.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For work, I travel a lot and depend on knowing what weather is coming through. Every morning I use wunder weather to see what the day/week's weather looks like and what I can prepare for. I started out as a personal user of WW, but have continued to use it in a professional capacity.

"The best weather service"

What do you like best?

I've been using wunderground for a long time. The best feature is the 10 day weather graph that allows you to see percentage AND amount of precipitation over the course of a day. A 100% of .01" isn't a big deal. So much more to base decisions on rather than traditional weather services. It's small data points such as this that can be factored into predictive and decision support tools via the API. Historical data feeds are also helpful for predictive tools.

What do you dislike?

The design of both the page and the app is a bit clunky and outdated. It's hard to navigate through the different features. 2 different kinds of radar and they aren't easy to switch back and forth. The UI could use modernization. These reasons all make the API worthwhile so you can build out a UI and tools that make sense for your organization and business case. The feeds from individual weather stations can also vary somewhat (within a margin of error. This could be due to setup and it would be nice to be able to exclude these easily.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Spend some time on the free website and app before diving in with the API. It will help gain an understanding of available data and nomenclature which will aid in development. The online documentation is also quite helpful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In scheduling activities and events, it really helps to know what to expect from inclement weather and when. A 80% chance of rain on Wednesday tells me very little. Better data points allow for more comprehensive decision support tools and reports.
