I agree that Hearst WYFF4 has some of the most obtrusive weather scrolls compared to a lot of the competing stations.
I understand when there are WARNINGS that they go to this extent, but for anything else like watches or advisories there is no good reason to do so, they are NOT required to keep the scrolls so large or constant. The scrolling effect is unnecessary and annoying to the viewer when they keep it moving all the time.
Also I noticed the new custom graphics for WYFF4 early this week, and while I think in some ways they are better in others they are NOT.
Firstly the animated hexagon "grid" patterns are distracting and annoying, totally unecessary, also the tile flipping effect on the inset box shown next to the anchor's head is silly.
The hexagon or grid/tile pattern should go or at least STOP animating it. PLEASE!
I actually like the banner design where the names of anchors and other information in inserted. It looks very classy and understated with the dark blue banner and clean white fonts.
The twin tiles with the station ID and time temp info I like less so to large and to invasive.
If we only had Weather PLUS back. While I can wish.
