Weather forecast is a joke day after day

Why would u say 80% chance of rain when there is -0% chance. *** ***. It's Myrtle beach. Unless there is a hurricane it is not gonna rain. Sunny every day should be the forecast.

I've given up on the Weather Channel

Who is the *** responsible for the Weather Channel website ? This has to be the slowest loading, bloat infested website on the internet, clogged with irrelevant and useless information. Who could think that a viewer interest in getting a quick picture of the local weather or a weather forecast would be interested in reading about sinkholes, how to remove belly fat and foot calluses, ads for cellphone apps, ski forecasts (its July 27 !), seeing traffic conditions on a weather map, or waiting 5, 10 minutes for a weather map to load ? As I write this, I have been waiting for a simple radar map to load on the site. I'm still waiting If this some sort of joke ? I'm done with the Weather Channel site.

Precipitation forcast

I have been following weather for a long time and can't believe how inaccurate the weather channels precipitation forcast is. I believe any person with a IQ over 50 could do as good. It is terrible.

Waiting, waiting, waiting

Maybe it is just my area, and maybe it is just weather.com website, but I have to wait like minutes for the page to load because of all the ads weather.com puts up. It has made the website impossible to use and now I go to other sources for my weather. The advertising dollars they make they will end up losing. The worst part is I know the picture or whatever I am trying to view is not even worth it. The weather channel is too greedy in my opinion. Although, I like the website and find the information useful, the ads make it impossible to use. I go elsewhere for my weather now.

What a coincidence! I just added Weather.com to my bookmarks and see no ads.

I suspect you are surfing the web with no ad blocking add-ons like Blur, AdBlock, Disconnect, etc. If you are using Internet Explorer, then switch to Firefox or Chrome and get the free ad blocking addons they provide.

There is no reason to have to put up with ads on ANY website. Also, be advised to get a program, free like Superantispyware or malwarebytes in order to get rid of all the trackers these websites will put on your machine as well as other types of malware.

Missed Forecasts that could deaths

The Weather Channel is horrible and a disservice to users often. My example is of the local weather where I live, Ben Lomond California south of San Francisco. For the past 2 years at least, their forecasts for my area have been off by as much as 25 degrees. Today for instance, at 10am they forecasted 84 degrees. The high temp for today was 102. The difference between the 2 temps can mean stress for elderly and maybe even death in the wrong situation. Tomorrow they forecast a high of 83. It will be in 90's I guarantee, at least. The biggest problem however is that they will not permit feedback from folks who are in a good position to give it. They refuse to by virtue to not increase their accuracy and yet still be raking in cash. They are a monopoly and in many ways, and therefore the quality of their product suffers and so do their clients, maybe even with their death. I have sent them feedback the ways they allow, and heard nothing back. They should be trying to get this information, but they instead choose to do their own way, the wrong way. They have millions of people who could increase their accuracy, but they ignore them. I am very upset with a company like theirs, one who from what I have read do not even treat their employees right. They should be investigated for putting out a terrible and misleading product.

Remark made that wasn't appropriate.

On the AMHQ morning show on July 5th, they were talking about when the first bikini came out and during the conversation Stephanie Abrams made a very distasteful remark referring to men and their bikinis. She referred to it as a banana in a hammock. I think that was to personal to be said on national TV. I love the weather channel, not as much with all the special shows that are being aired now. Some of them are interesting, but a lot are boring. Weather has always been a interest of mine, maybe that is why Stephanie's remark was offensive to me. Why so have to submit at least 100 words before your complaint can be submitted?

Waiting

General comment- I used to watch the channel back yonder when there was cool music and no other programs of or ads. I got disenchanted when hour long "weather related" programs started along with ads and such. I went to watching local weather on the Time-Warner when it was created because I TURNED THE CHANNEL ON TO SEE THE WEATHER!!- soon enough to actually do me some good. Your (interrupting!) programs can be interesting but I want to see the WEATHER! -get it- the WEATHER! without waiting for 20-30 min. (seemingly unpredictable) to see the radar (amongst other things). In half an hour most of the weather events that I tuned in to see are OVER WITH!! (I can look out the window, duh) Since my local channel (thanks Spectrum!) has been discontinued, I am back to watching again, only because of lack of choice. As a matter of fact, it seems that some of the extraneous programs are re-runs from years ago. If I can find another channel that actually gives me the info I want WHEN I WANT IT (I can live with every 8 minutes), you can bet I'll be watching it instead of the (SOMETIMES Weather Channel). I would guess (actually, I'm not guessing) that the almighty dollar is responsible, but as soon as I can I'm going elsewhere. I'm sitting here in Kansas in the dark with really severe weather overhead and I can't get any info as to what's ACTUALLY HAPPENING NOW. If I was in tornado situation (which could happen without my knowledge, due to lack of timely info), I might as well look out the window. PLEASE, PLEASE cut the ***, or change the name to the "Sometimes Weather Channel". Having said that, when you actually focus on the CURRENT weather I'll be a regular watcher again. Until then, if I see an hour-long extraneous program I just look out the window. I realize I'm peeing up a rope, but it's free except for my time. Thanks for listening. Hope it doesn't bounce off.

Weather forecasting is the one last business you can be wrong and still be OK. However I'd agree that there's too many ads on the Weather Channel's website. Too many to the point that it becomes unusable sometimes.

You don't have to be subjected to ads, pop-ups, etc. while trying to view a webpage.

There are many free programs that let you surf ad and pop-up free depending on the browser you use. The first thing to do is stop using Internet Explorer and go to Firefox or Chrome. Then, get free add-ons like Blur, AdBlock, Disconnect or UBlock Origin.

I use Firefox with three of those mentioned and rarely encounter ads or pop-ups----they are blocked. Do some research.

Especially on the weekend need to know what's going on right now not some *** weather related TV shows or a million *** commercials every few seconds not paying to see that *** change it or go off the air sick and tired of this stuff there could be a tornado and till we knew anything it would be to late to do anything to prepare for it

Short Review on January 25, 2017

I have watched the weather channel since it started. I have always loved it. Today I am watching and one of the news castors made a negitive comment about our new president. You just lost a viewer. Politics have no place here. Just talk about the weather. Also your terms of use below "pissed customer" are not cute. Do you have a child running your station?

Lately the Accuracy of the weather Channel and Weather forecasts in general is horrible. On a scale of 1-10 I would give it a negative 3. Half of the time the forecasts don't even agree within the site. For instance The main page might say 80% chance of rain, and you...

Weather channel should not put out bogus information that caused schools in south to close April 5th. This caused a lot of problems for everyone. It barely rained and thundered a few times.
