NWS API maintenance
« on: August 31, 2020, 12:12:53 PM »
Per https://www.nco.ncep.noaa.gov/status/messages/:

Today, between 14 and 22Z, api.weather.gov will be undergoing
impactful maintenance. During this time there will be
intermittent outages. This is a part of an ongoing effort to
stabilize the service. If you experience an outage beyond 22Z,
please contact NWS Tech Control at nco.ops@noaa.gov

Do the math to translate UTC to your time zone...

Hoping this leads to some stability.

It's just past 23Z now and... it seems a lot better. Not seeing zero errors, but timeouts and 50x errors are few and far between.

Ditto...  I'm using the hourly forecast portion of the API (in addition to extended, current conditions, alerts) for my work's Intranet site and that's really bad.

SENIOR DUTY METEOROLOGIST NWS ADMINISTRATIVE MESSAGE
NWS NCEP CENTRAL OPERATIONS COLLEGE PARK MD
1109Z WED SEP 09 2020


...SCHEDULED NWAVE MAINTENANCE IN BOULDER...


NWAVE Maintenance is scheduled at the Boulder Data Center today.
IDP applications have been moved/will be moved to College Park
ahead of the maintenance window in order to reduce impacts.
However, due to the increased load in College Park, users may
still experience occasional slowness on NOMADS, TGFTP, FTPPRD and
MRMS websites.

Also, between 1530Z and 1930Z, api.weather.gov will be unstable
due to the maintenance. During this time there will be
intermittent outages. If you experience an API outage beyond
19:30Z, please contact NWS Tech Control at nco.ops@noaa.gov.
