The Official WeatherBug Community
Impacts to the WeatherBug Backyard Community (see front page for details)
Due to the changes made to our network, PWS stations will temporarily be unavailable as a weather site selection from WeatherBug.com while we continue to roll out related updates. Those PWS participants who are submitting data are encouraged to continue to do so. But the data's visibility on the WeatherBug.com website is going to be temporarily unavailable until we finish with our needed upgrades. PWS is still a vital part of this community and we're looking forward to bringing it back into the fold on WeatherBug.com once the upgrades are complete.
Part of the PWS system upgrades include utilizing the new WeatherBug single sign-on feature. This is important as it allows us to provide even more functionality and additional subscription options with features that PWS users will enjoy. Also, this enables us to provide weather related home automation information that our community members can access. For international folks, the big feature upgrade will be the ability to get their PWS connected to send and receive data.
WeatherBug Backyard has been changed to better reflect our spirit of community. The new name is WeatherBug Community. In addition to the name change, we're ramping things up by driving new Website traffic to this site from WeatherBug.com. This means when you blog or share weather insights, more people than ever will be able to benefit from your experiences. The most active members will be eligible for WeatherBug Community incentives made possible by these upgrades.
Despite the temporary disconnect between WeatherBug products and the PWS stations, we're encouraging anyone interested in sending us weather data to go ahead and sign up as a PWS/Backyard user by clicking the registration link. This will make sure data is flowing to the system so when the upgrades are completed, you won't have any issues sending us data.
Existing PWS contributors are fine and do not need to do anything at this time.
We appreciate your patience while we are working on improvements and stay tuned for more exciting additions and product launches. If you have concerns or just need clarification on something, feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Backyard Stations are being rebranded Personal Weather Stations. "Pardon our Dust" as we work to transition our branding.
