WC not delivering to WU
« on: September 17, 2018, 06:36:03 PM »
WC is not feeding data to WU. Other feeds, CWOP, PWS, etc. are just fine. I've deleted and created several new Station IDs at WU to correct the problem, to no avail. I've contacted their support team which has been very responsive, but no useful suggestions. The WU preference page stays as shown in the screen shot. I've been using WC with my Davis Vantage Pro 2 for decades and this is the first time I've had a problem with WU. I've noticed several forum threads from 2014 and 2017, but nothing recent that is useful. Anyone else with this problem? Thanks!

My data looks current. The web cam image is 36 hours old. [rolleyes2]

Frankly, I rarely visit my page there as it has been so troublesome and unreliable.

Notice they have changed to Disqus for messaging. But I don't have the time to read the TOS and probably will not appreciate their data collecting scheme. So I'll not be reading the "message" apparently waiting for me there nor elsewhere using Disqus... [rolleyes2]

Most likely a problem on their end. (Re: WC not delivering to WU)

Dear senorwx, X-Air and WeatherCat data submission junkies,

WC is not feeding data to WU.

. . . .

Alas, Weather Underground has been performing poorly for over a year.  You will find a number of threads on this forum about it.  Here is just one although perhaps not the best:

http://athena.trixology.com/index.php?topic=2673.0

Weather Underground recently migrated to the Amazon cloud platform and apparently they have had software issues ever since.  I'm seeing that my webcam image is frequently not accepted although I just checked my station on Weather Underground and it looks okay at the moment.  I'm afraid we all have to put up with this mediocre service at the moment.  The consensus is to "wait it out" and hope they straighten it out soon on their end.

Cheers, Edouard

Sorry you are having WU trouble, senorwx. The last many issues people have had with their WU uploads have been eventually resolved on WU's end of things, not by anything any of us have done differently. At the moment, my WC uploads to WU are working fine. Sorry we don't have better info for you on this.
