Stale Zone Forecast
« on: May 16, 2022, 01:24:07 PM »
Strange one here...

My advforecast2.php is correctly defaulting to the zone forecast with api.weather.gov experiencing issues again this morning.  That's not strange.  What is strange is that the zone forecast being retrieved is a week old.  When I noticed this I cleared my cache folder to try and force a fresh fetch, and I still get a ZFP from 6-8 days ago.  Most of the time I'll get a zone forecast from May 10th, but I've also managed to fetch older.

Anyone else experiencing a similar issue?

When I first looked you were showing a 5/10/22 forecast. Did a force and updated to todays forecast issued at 9:55. Are you still seeing an old forecast?

No, it seems to have resolved on my end as well, however I believe this is because api.weather.gov was restored and the gridpoint fetch was successful.  Still puzzled why I'd be seeing a stale zone forecast when the gridpoint fetch is unsuccessful.  Thanks for the feedback.
