Weather Underground
« on: April 15, 2019, 08:14:34 PM »
Follow up to my previous cry for help.  I'm not even capable of logging in to WU.  Issues there too.  I'm new to this forum so not exactly sure how to make it work for me so looking for suggestions.

I'll give you the short answer.  WU has migrated to a new site and format.  The migration has not gone smoothly and there are numerous problems that include losing previous account information.  You may find it easier to create a new account and proceed from there.  As with everything, YMMV.

If you want all the details have a look in the Weather Underground thread.

I tried it with one of my PWS.  After an hour nothing yet, no luck.  Thanks for the suggestion.

You may find it easier to ...

.... abandon WU as many of us have.

They do not act in the best interests of the public.
Banners, tags, widgets, etc. are why I have Signatures turned off.

Any other platform to use?

From what I've seen other platforms require running a PC or Raspberry Pi, or similar device, to capture the data and upload it to other platforms.  That's not something I want to do so I just stuck it out until the new configuration started working again.  Now, I'm waiting for them to get webcams going again.  In the mean time they have gotten things back but it still isn't where it was with the old site in terms of functionality and granularity of data.

Thanks it's frustrating because neither of my PWS's work at all now on WU.
