We've merged the past, present, and future by creating a fresh look that scales across today's devices, adapts to tomorrow's technology, and maintains our classic rainbow spectrum. The raindrop's relationship to the U represents a rain gauge, a subtle nod to both our passion for data collection, and our incredible PWS community.

I had never heard of Weather Underground before but, given the number of tips received, I am assuming it's somewhat popular. The old logo was hilarious. Like ROFL-hilarious. Love it. The new logo is trying too hard. The ligature between the two letters just doesn't work and the dimension is all warped. The raindrop is kind of odd — a single raindrop for an organization devoted to tracking, like, dumploads of raindrops seems limiting. Also, they've added gradients everywhere so why stop with the raindrop? The typography is weird as well, very strange "N"s and "R"s. I mean, it's an improvement from the previous but that doesn't make this necessarily good.
Thanks to Christopher J. Griego for the tip.
