Ever since they changed their graphics it's all screwed up. The bottom of the screen that's supposed to be local weather is now 2 different places overlaying each other. It's totally unreadable. Then, when it's time for Local on the 8's I'm not getting local forecasts at all. It's like the kind of weather report you get in a hotel when you are traveling - weather forecasts for major cities all over the US. It's supposed to be LOCAL on the 8's.

I'm giving up on the whole channel. It's totally useless right now.

Am I in the only area that's dealing with this issue? Bring back the old Weather Channel.

TWC is the most useless and inaccurate place to get your weather from. I gave up on watching TWC years ago, I liked it better pre-2005 when it was actually about the weather and not stupid s***.

This summer it rained the entire time during a cookout I had when TWC said 0% chance of rain until after sunset. Not even 10 percent, 0. That's when I stopped taking them seriously.

I stopped watching when they made that stupid "Abrahms (sp?) and Bettes" show. Although I used to think Stephanie Abrahms was hot though lol

TWC always gets the lows in summer wrong. Never turn of your A/C when they announce a cool night because it usually never happens. Stupid front always stalls in Binghampton, NY.

Mine is set at 76 F and is also automatic, but stupid house never reaches that temperature on a typical summer night .

What you pointed out was a simple error - as near as I can tell the new graphics are working perfectly in most places, and they only show one location at a time. Errors seem to be occurring a lot more often as the new graphics are implemented - just be thankful this Thanksgiving that it works a lot better than healthcare.gov . As for the new graphics, new set, and new music in general, I'd say it's a definite improvement over what they had immediately before, which gave off an "on it's last legs" feel. At any rate, they (and us) have had a ton of weather to cover recently.

I quite liked the original Intellistar, but I'm sure I'll get used to the current setup. Kind of annoying the way the temperature winds up around that circle and you have to wait 2 seconds to see what it actually is.

Random observation - the wikipedia page for the new graphics features my favorite city in the picture
