Weather Underground - Outreach to the PWS Community

Post by PaulMy » Mon 15 Jan 2018 8:21 pm

Weather Underground is ready to come clean about the issues they are having. Here is a link to their post on the WXForum http://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic= ... #msg341640

Hopefully the PWS community will appreciate their outreach, and WU can live up to their commitments.

Enjoy,
Paul

Thanks Paul for posting the link.

I hope that WU folks don't drown from drinking the firehose of comments coming on their topic at WXforum.net and their Trillo board.

It is very refreshing to see them reach out and ask, and respond -- I'm hopeful that WU services (NEXRAD, Maps, API, PWS uploads, Webcams) all come back to their former reliability soon.

I seconded your excellent request for mixing of imperial / metric. Just one point. You might want to remove your email address. The bots will soon pick it up and bombard you. ;)
Cheers,

It's OK with that email address, as it's my website email and not my main email. It's easier to deal with spam through your own hosting. :)
