Yeah, I kinda thought there might be some hieroglyphics involved. :-)

It has something to do with securing government sites I'm sure but how it changes PWS sites not sure.

No worries.. looks like their WFO sites are changing layout design and switching to https:// for access.

Quote
On or shortly after April 18, 2017, all Western Region (WR) NWS
Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs), and Center Weather Service
Units (CWSUs) will migrate to a new layout on the front page of
their web home pages.
 
This change is in response to a required web infrastructure
consolidation. The change will provide office-to-office
consistency because the layout of the home page will be set
across the Region.
 
In addition, per Office of Management and Budget (OMB) directive
M-15-13, all publicly accessible federal websites and services,
namely, www.wrh.noaa.gov and WR River Forecast Centers (RFCs).
will only provide service through a secure connection (https).

The Saratoga scripts don't use WFO-specific sites for data as far as I remember, but some available scripts by others may use specific WFO sites and need some adjustments for the new sites/designs.
