The Official WeatherBug Community
Welcome to the WeatherBug Community!
Welcome back everyone,
Over the past few days, our web hosting provider for the WeatherBug Community at http://backyard.weatherbug.com/ experienced a service interruption. Rest assured that I share your frustration as this meant our community was unable to access to http://backyard.weatherbug.com/ during this outage.
At this time, it appears that http://backyard.weatherbug.com/m remained available throughout the course of the service interruption.
Going forward, if there is an outage you can check these sites for updates: http://status.ning.com/ and https://twitter.com/wbugcommunity -- I recommend bookmarking these for future use, just in case.
If you ever see Error 500 again, try logging into the mobile website: http://backyard.weatherbug.com/m for temporary WeatherBug Community access.
Even though the http://backyard.weatherbug.com/m site is limited and designed for smaller screens, it will work with any desktop/laptop computer as a fallback.
Once again, I deeply regret the downtime our community experienced and appreciate your patience.
We've recently added a new feature to our mobile apps called "Communities". The main goal of the feature is to provide organizations with a content management publisher that can integrate with our mobile apps. Some organizations are already taking advantage of this new feature. For organizations interested in adding content to our mobile apps using this feature, click here to learn more.

Radar is already showing significant rain moving toward us from Wisconsin, and this is expected to reach us by tonight. We can already see a buildup of clouds in the west and some light rain has been reported on the west side of the state. This morning, however, is beautiful, and it will be a great day to be outdoors. It was nice to sleep with the windows open once again last night, but there is more hot, humid weather heading our way.

Tuesday was mostly sunny with some scattered fair-weather cumulus at times, a tad warmer than yesterday and somewhat less humid. Temps were down just under the 60° mark in the early AM which is the coolest reading of the month so far, then rose with the sun through the 70s and into the low 80s by mid-afternoon. The dew point temperature ranged from 57° to 67° all day. The 57° dew point temperature is the lowest dew point reading of the month so far. Temperatures early this Wednesday morning around 2:30 AM are in the mid 60s while dew point temperatures are in the low 60s - still quite pleasant out there under clear skies though a bit higher than last night. Minimum temperatures should drop into the lower 60s by sunrise in a few hours with the dew point temperature dropping into the upper 50s. On Wednesday mostly sunny with high temps in the mid 80s, warming to the upper 80s on Thursday under…Continue

Yesterday, nearly 400 lightning strikes occurred in the Sierras with over 1,100 recorded across the entire district. Today, scattered thunderstorms will still be possible in the Sierras into the desert, but storms, and associated lightning, should be far less numerous. Most of the…Continue
