Tried reloading the plugin but the last update was 2/28/19.
Anyone else seeing this?

Thanks,

Carl

WUnderground stated that the API was going to be shut off on 2018-12-31, so there is a chance that they're starting to shut it down later than they expected. I don't have any way of knowing whether they'll shut it all down at once or in stages.

My advice is to move to another weather source and remove any dependency on WUnderground as quickly as possible.

Thanks. Maybe someone could recommend something else to use?

edit: Just checked gain and it did update about an hour ago.

You might want to try the Fantastic Weather Plugin. :D

Thanks. I have two weather stations currently reporting to WUnderground. I will see if they can report to Fantastic Weather instead. I am unfamiliar with it.

The Fantastic Weather plugin is a bridge for the Dark Sky weather data service. I don't think they accept weather station data, but I could be wrong about that.

Got FW plugin up and running but am finding the current temp reporting to be very inaccurate.
It’s been showing temps about 20 degrees above the actual temps here.
I have the correct lat/long entered.

Maybe something else to try?

Thanks,

Carl

Sorry to hear the data for your location isn't up to par. My experience has been different.

There are a couple other weather options in the Indigo world, including the NOAA Weather plugin and the Cynical Weather plugin.

Great. Haven’t noticed that Perry had a weather plugin.
Have to give it a try.

Thanks,

I'm having issues with Weather Underground as well, but I think it stems from weather underground itself. My station and webcam are definitely still reporting- I can see them on the iPhone app, but on the underground page they show as offline, and if I search out my station explicitly I get a 404 error. Very strange.

Unfortunately, it wouldn't surprise me. I'm not entirely sure what the takeover means for PWS sites, but I believe that WU has said that they would make PWS data available as a downloadable CSV file.

I have an ambient Weather unit that sends to Weather Underground, and then I would pull that data back to indigo using the WUnderground plugin. Fortunately, I recently had found this script to pull data directly from my ws-100x console which I was able to tweak to feed into Indigo variables. When Wunderground stopped updating, it allowed me to easily transition from the device states to my new variables.

I'm not really smart enough to make a plugin out of it- my coding skills are at about the level of what we used to call a "script-kiddie". But perhaps someone else wants to take the ball and run with it.

Code: Select all
{
  "response": {
  "version":"0.1",
  "termsofService":"http://www.wunderground.com/weather/api/d/terms.html",
  "features": {
  }
      ,
   "error": {
      "type": "keynotfound"
      ,"description": "this key does not exist"
   }
   }
}

Can confirm that the old API is no mas. At least mine anyway.

They said all previous API keys were cancelled. So they changed the API's and then required new API keys as well.

Yes, just showing folks what the return looks like for a formerly valid key.
