WUndergroundPlugin not working?

Hello,

I installed your plugin and every 15 minutes I get the following error: Weather: Unable to compile forecast email message due to missing data. Will keep trying. I turned on debugging and below is what shows up in the log every 15 minutes:

I x'ed out the API key in the url created above but the actual url created does create a json file that has all the weather data listed. I attached a copy of the json file and a picture of the configuration screen. Can you see what might be the problem based on this info? Thanks

Re: WUndergroundPlugin not working?

Yeah, sorry about that. Here's what's going on.

The Weather Underground API is supposed to send a standard set of fields but it doesn't always do that. This is a known issue with the API that Weather Underground has acknowledged, and WU has said that they will get to it "eventually". Sometimes, the error is short lived, and the plugin can recover on a future cycle. However, it seems that when WU doesn't recover very quickly, these messages can become a nuisance. So in the short run, you can ignore the messages or turn off the forecast email feature.

In the intermediate term, I think I'm going to change the plugin so that if the returned forecast data are invalid, the plugin won't try again until the following day. In the longer-term, I'm probably going to refactor that part of the code to "ignore" missing fields and just return whatever subset of data that WU has provided.

To be clear, we've only seen this issue with the forecast data. It appears that the other components of the API are unaffected.

I'm sorry that I can't do more about it, but I've only a few tools to work with for this particular problem.

p.s. Looks like you all are getting the windy weather that we're getting on the left side of the lake. :D

Re: WUndergroundPlugin not working?

I've posted a new release that pushes the next attempt to email the forecast to the following day.

Re: WUndergroundPlugin not working?

Okay. No problem. Doesn't sound like you have a whole lot of control over their returned data format. I'll shut off the forecast.

Thanks.
