I've given up on NOAA and their SOAP servers, I think they need a bigger 'soap dish'! I've simply deleted all but the graphical and the Detailed displays. The first is easy to get the 'big picture' and if details are desired, it's there. Since it's my site and I almost always went to the Detailed part, I saw no need for garbage or nothing in the other tab. I'm happy and what else matters?
I'll  be right there dear...

As I am not living in the US and also not that familiar with all the problems NWS/NOAA is facing I could need some help  and feed-back.

At the "beta" forecast script page https://www.weerstation-herent.be/saratoga/wsfct4/  there are two separate NWS/NOAA forecast scripts.
  • The "plain page" = "point-click forecast"  which should be migrating to the new environment in August 2018,  16 months later later then announced last year.
    The link = https://www.weerstation-herent.be/saratoga/wsfct4/wsNoaaPPage.php .  If the script is using the current or "to be"  data  can be seen on the first line "National Weather Service (v3) Forecast for: Some area
    v2 is the current point-click data, v3 is the test version of the new system
  • There is also the "detailed" forecast https://www.weerstation-herent.be/saratoga/wsfct4/wsNoaaDPage.php for which no cutover date is known to me.
    They are still changing it but those changes are more with links to icons, not with the data-structure itself.
    Until all settles down, I had to  split those two forecast into separate web-pages as they interfere to much with all those changes
But if you want to test those scripts, feel free to do so. At the bottom of the https://www.weerstation-herent.be/saratoga/wsfct4/ page there is a download link.
