I am guessing this is due to the jason file missing the "fcttext_metric" values. this is a known and ongoing issue with WU.
outlook.php / forecast10.php
https://apicommunity.wunderground.com/w ... 5-november
it seems to come and go and only affect some but not all."fcttext":"Partly cloudy. Windy. High 46F. Winds N at 20 to 30 mph. Winds could occasionally gust over 40 mph.",
https://www.conligwx.org/pws1/jsondata/ ... update.txt
possibly workaround is to use the fcttext if the fcttext_metric is null perhaps?
are you physic ? i have just finished an alternative api this morning its currently running at https://weather34.com so i just need to add all the
relevant changes to the cumulus version .
wunderground has been very very problematic last 5-6 weeks its an ongoing problem that is not just affecting there web based api it affects many of there
apps and third party apps which use the API as a reference for obtaining data.
As with all API's there prone to downtime which is 9/10 beyond our control as a user. we can rant on about wunderground but it doesnt resolve anthing so time to move on , i hope to have two options as alternatives sources one from darksky and the other from weatherbit https://www.weatherbit.io/api
neither is perfect but wunderground has become totally unreliable and this is the longest period ive seen for there API to have ongoing issues normally 2 or 3 days it gets resolved but this one is 5-6 weeks old now .
so ill let you know when Im finished adding the alternatives you will need to obtain an developer key or a key to use the api's
dark sky api key from https://darksky.net/dev
weatherbit from https://www.weatherbit.io/api (ive yet to run this for any length of time so may not appear in template for some time).
