What errors are you seeing with Fantastic Weather? It's running stably for me. There are periodic issues with the Pirate Weather API, but I have no control over that unfortunately.

I came here to drink milk and kick ass....and I've just finished my milk.

If you have had your API key for some time, you might be hitting the development URL which has been deprecated by the Pirate Weather service. The most recent release of Fantastic Weather plugin updates that link to the correct one.

See the last page or so of comments on this thread.
