Analog weather

2009/04/13

This has been floating around the webs for a while. The site is generally called an analog weather site and basically gives you the forecast for next 2 days. 

Forecast for Dublin

Forecast for Dublin

I’m not really sure why they’re calling it analog. The images aren’t functionally different from the NWS forecast-at-a-glance; they’re just nicer.  Don’t get me wrong, I do really like this site. It certainly appeals to that whole handmade, retro vibe as well as tapping in to the trend of one page web apps (remember Is Obama President?), but using the Yahoo weather service is about as digital as you can get. Strong design != analog. Analog would be looking out the window.
