WU connection intermittent on WS-2000
« on: January 21, 2023, 10:57:57 AM »
Hi I have been noticing today that my connection to weather underground seems to be intermittent as the WU logo in the top left corner of the display which indicates connection to WU seems to be on then off sporadically it seems to connect every 8 to 10 minutes as it was always updated every few seconds before. The ambient weather logo beside it stays on, and in the ambient weather app it updates every few seconds to 1 minute which is normal. I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing this behavior today as I think it may be on WU's end.

PS wifi signal is FULL and have rebooted router.

Same here , 14 minutes behind right now and I checked other station in my area and there the same . Probably a server  problem at IBM causing the problem again .

I am not dropping the WU icon on my WS-2000 console, but on the WU website dashboard I am only getting an update every 3 15 minutes instead of the normal 20 to 30 seconds.

After WU fixed the problem last September, it has been very solid and stable for me up until today. I did lose about 4 hours a couple of weeks ago, but that turned out to be my ISP and not WU.

I have the same issue as of midnight local time (13:00 UTC). The station reports appear every 10 minutes rather than one per minute, and the history graph updates every 40 mins or so.

Both my stations are affected, and both started playing up at the same time. They are on different ISPs.

Viola!

The website that I hate and can't quit -

Another 12-15 hours and IBM's WU support person will be back from his/her/their weekend break....   ;-)

this exact thing is happening to me on my ws-2000, too, and it's been driving me crazy all day. i thought it was something in my network, and spent a lot of time trying different DNS and time servers. these changes didn't seem to have any real impact. like alanb i do seem to be getting updates through, but with longer intervals, but my icon is also disappearing.

anyway, thanks for posting, and thanks everyone for replying! it's very reassuring to know the problem is not on my end.

The WU updating on my Ambient Weather WS-2000 seems to be working normally today ... updating every 20 seconds or so with no time lag on charts.
