In the fading light of the summer...

Sunset photo by Kevin Ambrose, Weatherbook.comAs August has bid us good-bye and September is now squarely in view, I wanted to take a few minutes to update you on the site, where we are and where we are going.

First, where we have been. August was a banner month for the team at capitalweather. Not only did we launch the new site design [see the old site in all of its poorly laid out glory], debut our first feature article with an interview of our new favorite on TV weather personality Tony Pann [review the interview], we also grabbed some great press from the Washington Post [registration required]

And while all of this was going on, August was our best traffic month since we launched the revised CapitalWeather in February. So I want to thank all of you, the users who have made the site worthwhile and a joy for all of us working behind the computers. Knowing that the site is starting to take hold and helping those around Washington with their weather needs is really great for us.

All of that is now old news though, and we are looking forward to an even better September. First, we have a good deal of changes in plan. Improved navigation and more current conditions so you can know what is going on right now. Real Time Watch and Warnings information to alert you of any impending weather. A quick, easy to see site information box so you know when the site is experiencing trouble (and when I am pulling my hair our behind the scenes). More Forecasts for the events that make up your life (including our favorite Wahoos!). And even more.

And if all that was not enough to keep you here, I would like to invite you all to participate in our latest contest to predict the snowfall for this Winter. Just Click here and enter in all the necessary info, and take a chance to win a new Weather Radio (what more does a weather enthusiast want?). Just click here and give it a shot.

As always, thanks to everyone who works on the site and uses it in their daily lives. If you have any suggestions or comments, you can always email me at See y'all in a month!
