Your Bookmarks Will Need To Change Too!
The National Weather Service’s primary web site www.weather.gov
plans to implement an upgrade. The improvement will involve the point ‘n click site specific forecasts and zone forecasts.
Once these changes occur on March 7, all your current forecast.weather.gov bookmarks will change. Links to a specific forecast page will display an error message that includes a URL to the new web site location. That is your opportunity to update your bookmarks to provide access to NWS forecasts quickly after the upgrade.
The primary focus of the upgrade is to make the forecast pages more reliable during weather events, but there are some benefits of new forecast pages as well that include:
· Addition of 7-day hourly forecast information to the point forecast page
· A new mobile-friendly landing and graphical/tabular forecast page
· Low-bandwidth optimization for all pages, on a partial roll-out at launch
