The Aviation Weather Center website is changing...

If you use the Aviation Weather Center's website found at https://aviationweather.gov, you might want to check out the look and feel of a "new and improved" version of their website here. For example, below is the GFA cloud cover depiction if this gives you any indication this is actually an improvement.

The static imagery page is literally useless at this point. You need to select a product (e.g., turbulence), then select the forecast hour, then select the level (altitude) and then select the category (e.g., clear air turbulence for light aircraft). Then, below those selections, the image appears. And you may have to scroll down to see the full image. Not sure how this is considered an improvement.


It's even worse on a handheld device like a smartphone which requires you to scroll a lot as you make the selections and then scroll to the end see the image...then scroll back up to change any of the parameters and then scroll back down to see the image. Again, just totally unusable.
