NOAA Plugin Failure?

The NOAA plugin has reported errors for about 5 days now. The xml appears to be up https://w1.weather.gov/xml/current_obs/KIAD.xml

Anyone else having this issue?

Re: NOAA Plugin Failure?

The plugin can get confused when a station disappears from the NOAA API (for reasons I can't explain, sometimes a station will flat out disappear--only to reappear later). I just added a new NOAA device with your AID and it loaded data no problem. You might try disabling and re-enabling that station and see if it makes a difference.

The next version of Indigo should include a revision to the plugin that handles this particular situation more gracefully (bearing in mind that this may or may not be the problem you're experiencing).

I created a new device with the same Station and it's updating ok. Deleted the old one.

Re: NOAA Plugin Failure?

Some data is now missing in NOAA Weather PLUS device. Was OK just a few days ago. Creating a new device did not change status.
Any ideas?

Examples:

currentCondition = NA

maxTempToday = 0

forecastTodayWorded =

etc.

Re: NOAA Plugin Failure?

I'm not sure that either plugin can do much when the data doesn't conform.

I'd suggest setting up a trigger or two to alert you when the data doesn't fall within some parameter(s).
