Ending the Weather Underground Data Feed
Posted by: MGCJerry on Sep 15, 2018 @ 21:23 EDT
Last Edited: Mar 7, 2019 @ 22:03 EST

Weather Underground is making changes to their API to pull data off their site. While this will not affect any normal users who use a browser, it will affect anyone who uses 3rd party apps and programs to pull data off Weather Underground. After the change, anyone who uses the API to create programs and apps that pulls data from Weather Underground must pay a license fee. The cost is unknown. However the users who upload their own data gets FREE access to their own data - What a deal!

How will this affect tiffinweather.com? Based on what information is currently available, Personal Weather Station (PWS) owners will still be able to send data to WU, and pull their own data from WU. However they will be unable to make use of the easy-to-use systems to pull data for elsewhere unless they pay a monthly license. Program & app developers will have to pay a hefty fee to make use of the new API and that will probably price them out of existence. "Enterprise Grade" API and related buzzwords are always expensive. As a result on my next maintenance run, I will be terminating the WU feed entirely.

This doesnt bode well for anyone who doesn't work for, or have a hand in a multi-million dollar company. Little people like us as usual will get left at the side of the road. That's my take on it, and you can read the announcement at https://apicommunity.wunderground.com/weatherapi/topics/end-of-service-for-the-weather-underground-api.


Updated March 7, 2019
Turns out to have access to the data this site previously used would require purchasing an API key for the low price of $400.00 USD a month, more advanced functions would require a more expensive key upwards of $2,000 USD a month. Not going to happen. I expected pricing like this given the words "Enterprise Grade" and the lack of additional details. tiffinweather.com makes $-31 year for domain registration, and hosting and thats ignoring power cost for the local server and hardware required to keep the system online.

Station Update June
Posted by: MGCJerry on Jun 13, 2018 @ 17:37 EDT

There was an ongoing issue with the rain collector that ended up resolving itself after contacting Davis for troubleshooting, and being sent replacement parts. If the issue reoccurs, I'll replace the rain collector switch.

I have also relocated the station to an alternate location to see how it improves readings. There should be some improvement to the overall readings. I cant guarantee perfect conditions because we are surrounded by many tall large trees.

It's Back

Yes, tiffinweather.com is back. I've managed to fix and address all the remote feeds to accommodate NWS, USGS, etc data feeds no longer working. I had to employ several different changes to the weather subsystem for it to work. This required a fair amount of work which I didn't have time for given my full-time schedule while we were incredibly busy.

Funny enough in the first 11 hours the site was online, there were 2 different hack attempts. 66.249.70.12, & 66.249.66.154. Strangely these IPs belong to Google, which leads me to believe a compromised machine or a malicious hosting account under Google's IP space. Stuff like this is what leads to data leaks, and breaches. Lax internet security. Stay safe out there.

Phase one upgrade completed
Posted by: MGCJerry on Dec 11, 2016 @ 14:54 EST
Last Edited: Never

The first phase of the upgrade has been completed. Most of the initial changes will not be visible to end-users. Some framework is now in place that allows me to add functionality and visual adjustments to the site as needed. Because of the software upgrade, some pages will need adjustments to visually match the rest of the system.

Phase 2 of the upgrades will continue into the week regarding the weather server. This will only affect uploading current conditions. Radar, Forecast and all other systems will remain operational.

Advisories have been fixed.

Due to yesterdays eventful night, I was alerted that the advisories alerts are no longer showing up. I am looking into the issue and hope to have a solution soon.
