Did they  mention anywhere else if they will keep the current test-site?
Or do we have to scrap the scripts and go back to the old point-click version?
I do not like to set R.I.P at my version 3 of my script: https://www.weerstation-herent.be/wsfct4/wsFctNoaaPPage4.php

Or is this message about some of the other changes?

Wim

I wonder when Paul Harvey will arrive with "the REST of the story"...

There's no mention of the current test site at forecast-v3.weather.gov nor api.weather.gov, both of which still function.

I'm continuing to offer both the V4 (old script) and V5 (JSON script), and include the V5 script with the Base-USA template.  The V4 script is only for sites who've consistently encountered issues with getting point forecasts via the V5 script/api.weather.gov.

No need to panic.. all remains as is for now while they plod along to implementation of the forecast-v3.weather.gov into production.  ETA unknown.  (but 2 years overdue)
