Re: WU update: The Task was canceled

for the last 2-3 months WU had been affected by outages to the extent their fire extinguishers are empty. The Support team had no idea how to fix issues. they have now drafted in a team to try to fix all outstanding issues (there is tons of them listed here: https://trello.com/b/hqC0tb0u/weather-und...

Re: Cumulus Realtime.txt Dashboard Template

Re: WU-forecast.php

Tony just seen that TEMIS give 6 days of UV data, but the first day is NOT todays date. its the 19th, I guess thats why you only see 3 days worth perhaps?

Re: WU-forecast.php

Hi Ken, I appreciate this is the wrong thread to post the following, however I thought for relevance I would. Not sure if this is just a script issue (or rather more likely Global Internet issue). However I just applied Simon's work around to my "uv-forecast.php" script as it has also bec...
