I would love to have a real time weather overlay on the WAZE maps. This would be a GREAT feature to add to aid in knowing more about driving conditions. Please vote and let's see what we can do to make it happen.
Thanks for your feedback. At this time, this doesn't fit on our roadmap, but we'll keep it in mind for future product planning.
Critical for drivers using Waze while driving. These missing conditions should be on there to be reported.
Add sun glare, sleet and blizzard, on both sides of the road, under the “weather” icon for the road map alert conditions.

J'adorerais cela avec une alerte des changements dans les conditions routières. Peut-être pas une superposition complète mais au moins une alerte vocale des conditions météorologiques/états routiers actuels

Sería genial así como se reporta un bache o un policía poder reportar el clima es algo que ayudaría mucho a todas las personas y también a la app ya que, no solo los conductores la usarían. Cualquier persona puede poner la dirección a dónde va, y ver en la ruta en qué parte está lloviendo y si hacía donde va esta lloviendo o no así puede salir preparada desde casa

I've just been using the app called "Journey Navigation" for this and it works great (for iOS)

There’s an app called Weather CarNav and they want $70 a year for this! Google please just buy them out and incorporate this technology into Waze for iPhone, CarPlay, android and android auto screens. A simple button to toggle the weather layer on or off would suffice.

If we have the power to save a life, lets use it

I live in Montreal Quebec area. We have had several multiple car pile ups due to fog, snow or ice resulting in severe injuries and even death. In many videos you see, cars and trucks arrive at these MVAs long after the first incident occurs. My suggestion is that there should be an MVA crash alert on WAZE, not unlike an amber alert for a missing child. The WAZE MVA alert would only be broadcast to those users that are routed through this trajectory. I get pop ups on WAZE regarding being stopped asking if I am at gas station or if traffic is severe. I am sure that with the power of WAZE there is a way to analyze when multiple cars are in an accident in the same area. This would trigger an alert, or at least a pop up for the affected user to claim they are in an accident. If 3 or however many users claim to be in an accident, this would trigger the MVA alert and hopefully the drivers en route to this spot will make the appropriate changes and avoid an accident. Thanks, just trying to avoid this:

Currently I can quickly get the "Too Many Reports" notification what reporting all the "crazy number of potholes" are my roads of travel! Sadly I am located where winter snow management & removal leaves many potholes in needing to be patched every spring! The good news is that I have seen many times after a month or so marking the potholes my roads of travel in my area... it really grabs the attention of needed "repair crew" to finally get the potholes filled! There needs to be an configuration update for which allows in much increased reporting of really marking all the potholes in my travels! Thanks!
With the new layout when using Android Auto, there's something that I don't know if it's intentional but for me it seems a bug.
I always have the "button" to send info about police, accidents, etc highlighted but with the new layout, after a few seconds it goes, always, and automatically, to the magnifying glass, which with the "steps" we have to do while paying attention to the road, becomes a lot harder to inform other drivers in time.
With cars that already have touchscreen, probably is not a deal breaker but for those that doesn't have, it's terrible.
A couple hours ago I made 50km with a lot of fog on some areas of the motorway/highway, and never had the time to send that info.
The actual speed and speed limit now are better with the increased size. I would prefer it to be between the info about where we are and the info about the hour we will arrive, but the increased size was a very good change!

Apples on the way map GPS does this very well, I think this is an important ad to keep Waze relevant
Please add blizzard and whiteout conditions as low visibility on the weather options. It would be good to advise drivers over audio that whiteout conditions are ahead please slow down. Would prevent many needless accidents and injuries.
(UK) -> Please, can the additional hazard reporting features under weather be added -> snow on road etc, salt (grit), this is very common in the UK, especially with cold weather, a lot of salt is placed?

Would like poor visibility snow, fog, rain, smoke, everything with various degrees like the traffic rating that would be very helpful
Context: I was driving in fog today. There was many fog warnings from Waze giving me the impression that there was many users on the road.
My idea: what if an alert gets generated of a multi car pill up when multiple user's speed goes to 0 in a 50-200m stretch. This would give a warning to cars behind to slow down due to a pill up (multi car accident).
I think the logic could be that if a number of user's speed is 0 on a controlled access road (freeway).
If only one user is stopped... This could be also a auto generated stopped car alert.
Thanks for the consideration.

Several others have posted asking for low visibility and the admin is saying that unplowed road has been added. That is NOT the same thing. Both last and this morning I’ve been slowed to 35-45 mph by blowing snow on plowed roads. The roads aren’t blocked but there are patches of almost zero visibility. A Wazer in France posted about rain causing the same issue. Please add low visibility as well as the unplowed roads.

The map needs to alert to requirements for snow chains and high wind advisory
Would love this with an alert of changes in road conditions. Maybe not a full overlay but at least a voice alert of current weather conditions/road conditions. Other car GPS's have this feature (wind alert, severe thunderstorm, etc. ).
