    I know you all have probably discussed this, but I really miss the plotting tool on the Forecast graph. Loved the way you could drag your mouse over the forecast and the X/Y axis would plot out height and wind direction. Also had the specific info on wind called out in a little bubble. SwellInfo ever going to bring that back?

    as far as I can tell, it still offers this. try restarting computer or browser bc that still works for me. I like that feature as well though, junkie for detail.
    completely unrelated, but which atlantic beach are you referring to in your location, that small suffolk county parking lot on dune rd?

    Maybe one of the admins or devs will chime in . . .

    I am pretty sure the forecast timeline used to be an embedded flash element. Now it looks like it is done with html/javascript/css. I remember an admin making an announcement that they had gotten rid of flash throughout the content areas of the site.

    OP - you should check to see if the interactive features of the map underneath the forecast timeline work. If you click one of the red location dots a box should pop up with the forecast, etc. for that location. The map is also flash-free, so if the map is also not working for you, the problem may be with your browser settings.

    This is a browser issue that just arose in some browsers. We are looking into fixing this now.
    For me, all browsers, except Chrome work fine. Regardless, we will get it fixed shortly.
