More Cool Weather For Mid Michigan

Once again, our temperatures will be on the skids over the upcoming few days.  We won't even make it to 50F on some of them but at least no snow is forecasted.  It's hard to believe that May is just a week away and we are still having a hard time seeing 60F. Usually we are seeing leaves on the trees by now and…See More

"Ugh some of those are really slow. Wonder what can be done to speed them up. I think AWS offers CDN for dynamic content now which would cache some of that locally on servers in Australia, speeding up performance somewhat."

Some Backyard Stations Not Appearing in WeatherBug 10

There's a current glitch with WeatherBug 10 causing some Backyard Stations not to appear. Our teams are working hard to resolve this issue ASAP. Thanks again for your patience during this issue. As of now, there is no need for you to send in support requests if your station isn't appearing in WeatherBug 10, but do continue to send in support requests if you have issues seeing your station on WeatherBug.com.

Thanks!

CWOP Stations in iOS Apps Down

We're running into some issues with our CWOP stations and iOS, so as of now, CWOP stations will not be showing properly in iOS until we work to resolve this. Our teams have estimated this resolution could take anywhere from two weeks to four weeks to resolve (as they have other major projects going on as well). We will keep you updated as we hear status reports from them.

We appreciate your patience as we work to resolve this issue and re-deliver CWOP sites to iOS…

More Cool Weather For Mid Michigan

Once again, our temperatures will be on the skids over the upcoming few days.  We won't even make it to 50F on some of them but at least no snow is forecasted.  It's hard to believe that May is just a week away and we are still having a hard time seeing 60F. Usually we are seeing leaves on the trees by now and this year, they are barely budding out.  According to local meteorologist, Mark Toregrossa, we can expect these below normal temps to continue right into the summer months.  I guess that's bad news for hot weather lovers of which I am not one.  If it never gets above 80F all summer would be just fine with me.  Unfortunately, cool weather usually means wet weather and I don't want too much of that either.…
