RECORD EVENT REPORT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
0426 PM CDT THU SEP 20 2018

...RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURE SET AT PADUCAH KY...

 A RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 97 DEGREES WAS SET AT PADUCAH KY TODAY.
THIS BREAKS THE OLD RECORD OF 95 SET IN 1955.

On the other hand, TV weatherman Mike Morgan said he thinks Thursday was the last day for highs in the 90s in Oklahoma City for the rest of the year.

In case you didn't get an instruction manual with your IP - 100, here is an online link to it: https://www.rainwise.com/products/attachments/6895/20150205012733.pdf

And if you have not done so already, there is a specific procedure to reboot the IP -100 if it quits working properly, which is described in the manual.

Such a good piece of hardware, and we can't share it with CWOP... Wunderground is still a big mess as far as I'm concerned. I hope something works out soon on the software end.

WeatherUnderground / backend failure
« Last post by danxx on Today at 11:56:45 AM »
When I request the page for many different WU sites, I get a message "An error occurred  backend failure". Sometimes I refresh the page and it appears, but much of the time the error just happens again. I have to request the page repeatedly to finally get it. This is pretty annoying. What's going on?

I was seeing "backend failure" frequency was near 100% early Sept 21st while <10% on prior weeks.  Slightly better ~40% failure today.  My neighbor mentioned the page was down and had to explain as more WU problems.  Hopefully ToddG continues to kick someone's/something's backends to get close to 100% functional  :-)

IP-100 LR use a xbee receiver card inside, you could reseat it inside the ip-100 and see it that helps, there is also a possibility they use the exact same module in the oracles and since you have so many maybe swap the module with one of those and see if the problem moves.

No help here.  When my IP-100 had problems it was always with the router, fixed when I finally convinced Comcast to replace it.  My suggestion is to contact our friends in Maine.  I don't know the names in support anymore, but see what they have to say.  I do like the IP-100, and since getting a new router, it has given me zero problems for the past couple of years, automatically rebooting after the occasional power outage without a hiccup.  My IP-100 is the "short range" model.  It is near the router, about 20 feet from the station.  I also recently moved my station to a more accessible part of the roof with no change in reliability.  Good luck.

further info on Amazon price drop refunds: https://www.groovypost.com/howto/request-amazon-price-change-refund/

I splurged yesterday for the $275 bundle and just tried to get the 7% overnight price drop refunded by chat, but they refused.

Looks like in this case 1. they were following the practice of some Ebay sellers, and dropping the price on weekends to keep sales up, and 2. working toward perfecting their model of dynamic pricing with no overlap periods.

The 7% price drop would have almost cancelled the sales tax that I have to pay on Amazon orders--which the state of Texas then passes on to Amazon as a subsidy. Games.  #-o

I had the same "no luck" via chat. Same here with the tax in Ohio. The odd part is if I ordered today to get the $18.91 off, it would arrive Monday but the current order is scheduled for Tuesday. I am still debating if it is worth the hassle to return the original one to save the cash...seems like glitches happen when trying that route.

It appears that my MESH NETWORK (eero) interferes with my Ambient 2902-A network connection. The connection seems to work when I only have the main hub plugged in. When I plug in an extender HUB the station stops broadcasting--any help here?
