Please put back the celsius/centigrade, C option for the weather that was available in the earlier design of wral.com. Thanx. Zafer

MIKE MOSS SAYS:        Your timing is impeccable! Our web staff was working on that change, and just implemented it a day or two ago. You can now go to our "Current Conditions" page, where you'll find a link labeled "Use metric units." If you select this option, the observations shown on that page, along with the current and forecast conditions shown in the top right corner of the main weather page, and a portion of the NWS city forecasts retrieved using the drop-down selector beneath our 5-day forecast graphic, will all switch to showing metric units, with temperature in Celsius, wind speed in km/hr, and pressure in millibars (not technically a metric conversion, as mm of mercury would be, but more commonly used even in otherwise metric countries). Thanks for the suggestion...
