TalkWeather Forum Upgrades (July 3, 2021)

Welcome TalkWeather members!

At this time TalkWeather forum is undergoing a backend upgrade to a new system archtecture that will help improve the responisveness of the site, especially during severe weather events. It will also help us plan to grow with additional resources for members expected to be added later this year. However, in order to make this transition the database and applications servers will be down for around an hour on the afternoon of July 3, 2021.

Updates will be posted to this page as progress is made. If you have any questions or concerns, e-mail us at [email protected]

Thanks,

Wes
