You Spoke, We Listened!
We hear you!
Updated Wednesday, May 23, 2018
Since rolling out the new forecast page designs (see the article below to learn all about the new pages and why we have them), many of you have written to us to share your feedback. Thank you!
Your feedback is very valuable. As we continue to improve the forecast pages, we are considering your feedback and prioritizing what is important to you.
WHAT'S NEXT: Top 10 forecast page items we are working on now. These improvements will be added soon.
- Improve the text colour contrast against the background. Specifically, the section below the current condition (Wind, Humidity, Pressure, etc.) and weather descriptions within the forecast tables (Cloudy, Sunny, A Few Showers, etc.)
- Provide an option to see the full 14 Days and first 12 Hours on the 14 Days and Hourly reports
- Reinstate the Trend Graphs
- Have the ability to see more than your top 4 saved/favourite locations on the grey bar
- Display the local photo gallery section within the page
- Improve the alignment of the forecast tables
- Better identify the Low/Night temperature within the forecast tables. Please note that the Low/Night temperature can be seen on the forecast table on the lower right of the bigger number. The bigger number is the High/Day temperature. The smaller number beside it is not a decimal point.
- Improve the Current Day/Next 3 Hours/Overnight/Short Term forecast. Please note that the Current Day/Next 3 Hours/Overnight/Short Term Forecast has been replaced with a textual representation of the forecast. It can be seen right below the Current Condition and above the News section on the 7 Day page. You can click on these boxes to be directed to a more detailed breakdown of the forecast.
- A more visible link to the Last 24 Hours report
- Restore direction of the Pressure observation

Thank you for your patience and support! Please keep sending us your honest feedback - the good, the bad and the ugly - we want it all!
Faster and Clearer Weather on the Web
Thursday, April 26, 2018
At The Weather Network and MétéoMédia, we are committed to delivering weather information 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We go beyond the forecast to help you plan your day and keep you safe. That’s why we are excited to share with you some important and helpful changes!
In May, we will be transforming our primary weather pages on our desktop website to give you your weather faster and clearer.
You spoke, and we listened! These changes are in response to what you have told us about our service and what you need from us. We’ve received your emails and have conducted several tests and surveys throughout this process. You asked for a faster loading website, more weather information and easier access to content. We’re working on giving you this and more!
Why are you making changes?
It’s important for us to keep on improving our forecasts. It’s time to make changes not just aesthetically but also with our technology to make TheWeatherNetwork.com and Meteomedia.com perform more effectively.
We're working with you to evolve our weather forecasts and products to better meet your needs. Using data and your input through emails, social media and surveys, we learned how to give you a clearer and accurate forecast with each visit. Over time, we’ll keep on improving features based on your feedback.
What exactly has changed?
You can find the change on your favourite city forecast pages on the desktop website.
For example, the 7 Days, Hourly, 36 Hours, 14 Day Trend and Weekend forecast links to these pages will be easier to find. All the weather information on these pages have been redesigned to be bigger, brighter and easier to read.
We’ve also added a new feature to help you plan for your day. The forecast for the current day will be presented using plain text in addition to temperature and icons, giving you more information.
These pages will continue to provide the content you expect with a promise of delivering in less time.
Where is my short-term forecast?
The short-term forecast design of icons and temperatures has been improved with a text description. Depending on what time of the day you visit the website, you’ll be able to see weather text from morning, afternoon, tonight, overnight to tomorrow.
To see more details, it will be easier to access other pages like the Hourly and 36 Hours forecasts.
Can I still use the old design?
To support the faster loading forecast pages, the current design will no longer be available once the new pages are launched. This will not only ensure that the overall performance is better but that there’s a consistent experience throughout.
We hope you're as excited as we are for the new changes. Please let us know what you think by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
