The weather Channel website is NOT a "weather " website.

It is an ADVERTISEMENT website. It is so crammed with advertisements that it is obvious that the main purpose of the website is to generate advertising revenue...and the weather report is simply an after thought.

The large amount of advertisements and bloat-ware makes the site painfully slow to load...and if you are patient enough to wait for it to load...you have to re-enter your preferences ( like 10-day forecast ) every time....and then wait again for the preference to re-set. Also if you are unfortunate enough to click on one of their " stories of the day" you have to wait a long time again while another set of advertisements load.

The entire website is so poorly designed and so loaded with advertisements that it has become virtually useless...and i have given up and gone to other sources for my internet weather. I will check back in a month or so but I have little expectation that the situation will change.

I use too like the weather app but it has gotten too be so bad it has turned into a *** advertisement app.I am looking for a better app.

#1842487

It didn't used to be so bad even a month ago. What happened?

#1827631

The weather channel has the worst website. I mean it's horrible.

All the ads have made it so slow that it doesn't even work anymore. They're such a big company you wouldn't think they would let their website get into this shape. It's pitiful.

WTF is the deal???? I feel like someone should lose their job over this.

I like getting radar and hourly weather. This site is useless!!!

So slow you have to go get some coffee and hope it loads by the time you are back. Are there alternatives that give weather all over the country that work?

#1818518

Where can we get just the weather in real-time?

#1816176

Totally agree. This site is an absolute JOKE!!!! Will not longer use it as I don't have 15 min for each page to load due to it being crammed with ads.

#1789659

So it's not just me!

#1755486

I have just read this entire page twice and the Weather.com page still hasn't loaded in the other tab!

#1755083

Weather.com website is a joke! It's sad to see that weather is an afterthought and advertising is more important.

The weather channels website is and has been the worst for at least 3 years, why I continue to log into it and try is ignorance on my part. I never use the app on my phone it's so loaded with ads it just *** me off.

You think they would listen to the consumers, I've sent them several emails, but it just gets worse. I am finally done.

#1738105

What happened, they used to be worthy now they are terrible? Worthless phone app doesn't work half the time and it's so slooooowwwww. I've given up on them.

#1725270

Worst weather website, too many advertising and no update for months, simply garbage - weather.com

#1718625

The website is ridiculous. I don't even use it anymore.

Cant remember the last time they got our weather forecast right.

Its 2019 you would think we would have greatly improved technology to get a semi accurate forecast. And let's not get into how long it takes the website to load.

#1713456

Just Stinks

#1691401

Why is the website so slow to react ? Just plain garbage ! Unbelievable really ~

#1634309

Could not agree more. Website and App are terrible.

#1615898

Why is that they can "predict" two days of rain for Philadelphia, to start in less than 12 hours, when the closest front is in Dallas? They are so consistently wrong with forecasts that I think a dart board would better for them to use.....or, is that what they ARE using?

#1608460

I agree 100% WC sucks! painfully slow.

#1594215

Yes, their website and the iphone app are horrendous. I would look elsewhere.
