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

discussed here:

viewtopic.php?f=25&t=16597

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.",
"fcttext_metric":"",


https://www.conligwx.org/pws1/jsondata/ ... update.txt

possibly workaround is to use the fcttext if the fcttext_metric is null perhaps?


hello

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).

I don’t see much better options out there that cater for universal I see specific api’s for countries but that just creates an headache trying to cater for everyone.so there you are unfortunately Wunderground is not the current best solution however I always have the scripts to hand to,revert back if they improved.

So anyway it’s all done will upload tomorrow morning now have todo the meteobridge version. No change to the wxsim version as it is self sufficient.

Not sure if this is another option if all the other don't live up to expectations: - Open Weathermap - https://openweathermap.org/api

hello think im going to hold off on darksky for a bit seems to be some anomalies when using with languages , whenever calling the api to say output in french in always returns the data in non metric and correctly french language ,even though the api as specific options to determine whether you want metric,non metric wind in mph etc.just dont seem to work right when using the language options.

so i need to look at the script more closely or back to the drawing board ., its flawless when using the english

Hello spent best part of the week trying different forecast API's yet to find anything as flexible as WU (when it works) . so I am still trying them them out
but Darksky is not a good option universally .

I have re-written all the forecast data scripts , they are NOT dependent on jquery to actually convert any data SO LOADS EXTREMELY FASTER, i rewrote them to be able to just slot in any API json data output that I may find reliable in the future FROM OTHER SOURCES, less problems going forward in terms of using additional api data from other sources making it very easy to adapt .

main page forecast now updates just like the other modules every 30 minutes so no need for meta refresh hacks to see the updated forecast

some slight subtle changes , now has a metric switch in the top bar, cleaned up css and design layout for forecast again subtle differences see screenshot below as always available at https://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/

hello please re-download and just replace the forecast folder , Leon using meteobridge ver spotted the error switching for non metric might cause issues for UK users both versions are identical int hat respect.. sorry for the inconvenience but easily fixed only need to replace that folder forecast.
