The Weather Channel introduces new icons

Recommended Posts

Earlier this morning, around 2 AM, EST, The Weather Channel made the debut of their new weather icons, which are used for their maps, Local Forecast..ect. This is the first change of icons since 1998.

 

In My Opinion, these icons are pretty cool, although I do think that the other icons they used were better.

 

If you want to see them..you can see SOME of them at weather.com... I do not think all have changed on there yet

 

My favorite is deffinately the thunderstorm Icon 8)

I have to say that they are a great update. this must be a part of the new graphics they are set to launch next year.

That is also my assumption as well. They should also (I belive that is what TWC told me) be changing the layout to the LF, as well as all their shows

 

Also.. I noticed a little change in the Abrams and Bettes Studio

 

I also think some of the Icons could be just a bit biger :-\

I eMailed execs at TWC..and they just said January

 

I would think either the 1st, 8th, or 15th (my guesS)

I'm new to this forum, and was wondering, the weather channel rebranded in September, but not since then, are they going to rebrand again?

No, they aren't rebranding again anytime soon... they'll just get a new HD studio and new graphics - the date is set now for "early 2008." The HD set is to be completed in January.

I ment new graphics, such as the L3s, and opens, and stuff like that.

 

well..first off..TWC rebranded starting August 2005.

 

No..as the posts said..no rebranding of anything is expected til early next year.

Personally, I do not like the new icons, on low def tvs, those things are torture. Even on my high def it can be difficult to see . . . especially in the winter if you cant tell if it is showing snow or rain 15 miles to your west. I miss the old weather channel from when I was growing up, before the Storm Stories and such took over.

I like storm stories!

 

Wow, it has been a while since I have heard that from anyone.

 

Re: arkansasdolfan--- You get used to it after a while. It is easy now, for me to tell between the rain and snow..ect. But, you are right, the winter ones are hard to tell.
