Q: I want to point out a rather minor, yet frustrating piece of functionality on wfaa.com. While I appreciate, very much, the availability and the wide range of weather radars available on the site,
it is simply maddening when I click on an animated radar on the home page (when there are storms in the area you put 5 area radars on the home page), the website returns a still radar. Can y'all make it to where it returns to animated radar?
A: We spoke with the site manager and he offered the following explanation: “The large still radars load considerably quicker than the animated radars and they show the most recent image. We link to those first and let the user decide to proceed to animated versions. Thus, they get the information quicker.” We hope that explains the site strategy a little better.
