A new station/page has appeared on WU
« on: February 21, 2013, 05:38:22 AM »
For some reason, WU has decided to post some of my data as a MADIS site on a separate page with a slower update rate.

http://classic.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXDailyHistory.asp?ID=MD0148

I'm hoping this is only a temporary glitch.  I'll send them a ticket.

Has anyone else had this happen to them?

Thanks,

On the new WU pages, I just checked and I see local PWS showing up twice. I see both my CNYWeather & APRSWXNET for my station and a few others. Up until a few days ago last I checked this wasnt the case.

Same here.

The good news, is that I noticed that my password on my second WU station has been wrong since July  :oops:

I'm seeing that, too.  So maybe after 24 hours, it will go away.

It didn't happen to me, but it happened to the station down the road from me. Although the second station does not have a MADIS ID. The true ID of the station is E1846, but on Wunderground it shows up as ME1846. Do your stations have a different ID, or is it the MADIS ID?

That brings up 2 questions for me. 1) Why don't I have one of these odd stations? 2) Where is Wunderground geting these IDs from? Where do the ME and MD come from? I am guessing maybe M for MADIS, and E for EW stations, and D for DW stations?

The MD or ME is the number from CWOP.  Mine is MD0148 because my CWOP number is DW0148.

Yeah, I get the number part. I just don't get the letter part.

I've sent WU support a message about the issue.. we'll see what they say tomorrow (when tech support is on duty :) )

My own station (and looks like all the WU+CWOP stations are duplicated on the Saratoga, CA WU page too).  I originally had C1792 as my MADIS ID (based on what they call me via the CWOP->MADIS ingress).  I've changed it to MC1792 in my WU profile, but it seems to have made no difference yet.

The mystery station is gone now from WU.  Since I have three stations on the same pole, I had to enter the locations (long, lat) slightly different so they would show up on the wundermap.  It might be that the locations being different that what's in cwop/madis was causing the extra station to show up.  However, I've had the setup for several years now, so it's odd that it just showed up.  But, anyway, I sent them a trouble report and it's fixed.

Well, this morning all the doppleganger MADIS entries on the Saratoga,CA Wunderground.com page are gone.

I did receive a reply from the help desk at WU asking for a screen shot that showed the problem, but since they fixed the issue over night, couldn't send the requested evidence -- Oh well, getting it fixed was the intent anyway and they appear to have done that.

Same here with my two stations. Originally their coordinates were together at my house then a day or two later I changed it to show them separated several hundred feet on either side. The new MADIS postings showed up at my original (house) location before the separation change was made. I had a WU map with four stations with the two MADIS stations at my house. Looks as if the first MADIS location entry sticks with later corrections ignored. I guess enough members questioned WU about this issue as mine is corrected (gone) also.
