They seem to have disallowed HTTP1.0 access (so Akamai sends the 'Forbidden' response).

I've updated the advforecast2.php script to V3.14 31-Mar-2015 to use HTTP1.1 access, and it works again.

Standalone users: download from the script page.
V3 template users: use the update tool page for Base-USA, Plugin-*, 31-Mar-2015 query.
