Re: More odd Wunderground behavior

Yes, that's exactly right. I compare the timestamp of the latest API data to the last successful one and only update the data if the new data is, well, newer. This generally works well, but can cause brief instances like the one you describe.

Re: More odd Wunderground behavior

One such idea would be the setting in the screen grab you posted. If the WUnderground API returns data with the "estimated" flag set to true, then the plugin won't update. One way this can happen is if you monitor a PWS and it stops responding. WU will often try to provide something useful and will mark it so the user knows that it's not actually coming from the PWS.

Mine is updating as expected.
