Yeah I'm getting the same but on the forecast page I'm not, still has wrong temp and update is about an hour

I never look at forecast page being I have my own website.
Dashboard and almanac is all I've ever linked or used with WU/ Weather channel using same models and it's not trustworthy for my area so forecast I link and use is straight from the horse's mouth, local NWS forecast office North Platte.

You might have noticed that the weather station page you linked to still has the OLD design. Wanna bet that's going to be changing soon? They rolled out on their most important pages first and will likely circle back to the less visited pages in time. I predict it will be just as "useful" as the forecast page once they've assimilated it into their new design.

The desktop version of my page only updates every minute but on my phone it updates every few seconds.

Looking at my almanac link the RF isn't working.  I'll remove this link from website. If dashboard goes down no reason to send  data any longer. Its updating just not at RF rate of 4 seconds.

When I click on the forecast page now it says updated 3 minutes ago but when I compare it to my readings 3 minutes ago, it's off, in some cases way off, in humidity, dew point, pressure. I bet if the temp weren't stable right now that would be off too. Maybe that's a reason they round up to whole numbers now?

Obviously having major growing pains if that is what you want to call it. On forecast page I don't have any temperature right now, just basic forecast stuff. No update time at all.

My History Page still is responding to rapid fire updates but, of course the Forecast Page is not. Is there any other site out there that will update similar to rapid fire?

Nothing I'm familiar with other than running your own website with scripts as some have done.

Now I'm seeing the delay; I wasn't looking in the correct spot.  #-o

I can't go back and reread this whole thing.  Are you guys seeing anything on the 10 day forecast page at all?  Mine has been a blank page since Saturday at home and I'm getting the same result here at school this morning. 

I will really miss the 10 day forecast page if they don't fix it.  I love it when the night guy predicts 47" of snow for a week from Thursday and then the morning guy comes in and slashes the prediction down to flurries, only to have the night-time guy come in and raise it again.

EDIT:  The 10 day forecast just loaded, but it took a good 10 minutes to start and the page loaded very slowly.  It looks ok though.

Well, the entire site seems down from here in Maryland for about 2 hours now.

Right now the local forecast at https://www.wunderground.com/forecast/us/md/new-windsor/KMDNEWWI3 doesn't render.  The monthly calendar seems to work...

Current and forecast Wx data looks ok, but my and several other area webcam images haven't updated since around 0330 9/12.  (posting this at 1130 9/12) SW Idaho, USA.

Dew point (or humidity) is still wrong! 

OK, so I took their hour old data on the forecast page (my station) and verified their calculations. They were reporting a 71 deg air temp, with 58% humidity. That SHOULD BE a 55.5 deg dew point, but WU was reporting 52. I saw a neighboring station whose dew point was off 7.5 degrees!

My guess is the temperature is updated separately from the other conditions. Who knows.

Anyone else want to see if this is happening to their conditions, you can use this dew point calculator: http://andrew.rsmas.miami.edu/bmcnoldy/Humidity.html.

I tried to call them, their number is out of service, not good.  i did find this:https://www.sitejabber.com/reviews/www.wunderground.com#question      and the only webcams that I find on their site happen to be department of transportation road cams or some from a travel agency.  what it appears to me is that rather than taking our photos, they have embedded links to other sites.   Eh... sucks but I think that is the game they play.

You and/or others may find this one a little easier to use.  http://www.dpcalc.org/
Or, you can use this NOAA(*) empirical approximation formula:

Tdp = (173 + 0.9*Ta)*(RH%/100%)^(1/8)  - 173 - 0.1*Ta

where:
RH% = relative humidity, percentage
Tdp = dew point temperature, F
Ta = ambient air temperature, F
