How would YOU change the weather page?
Unless you believe in the meteorological power of prayer, you can't change the weather. But maybe you can change the weather page.
The Baltimore Sun is preparing for a major overhaul of its PRINT weather page. Having weathered a period of shrinkage and a loss of color, we are now on the rebound. Soon, perhaps as early as January, we will be expanding our current quarter-page of weather data to its former half-page glory. It will also be relocated from P. 3 to the back page of the Sports section.
And, we will be bringing back the color.
With the added space, we plan to add or restore weather data we haven't been able to provide in our currently cramped quarters.
So, consider this your opportunity to tell us what you'd like to see on the print weather page starting in 2011, or what you'd like to see disappear. A national weather map? An accounting of heating and cooling degree-days? Humidity and barometric pressure readings?
Could you use a clearer display of pollen counts and air quality conditions? More (or fewer, or better-displayed) national and international temperatures and forecasts? More information for stargazers? More (or less) of me?
Leave a comment here, or send me an email directly and let us know what changes you'd most like to see, what information you find most (or least) useful, and what you'd most like to see if we can squeeze it in.
Over to you...
