weather data retrieval
Saturday, January 2, 2010 by machinehd | Discussion: OS Customization
Has anyone else noticed that as of Jan 1st, the METAR data doesn't work for most sites to retrieve weather info? Almost every site responds with a Parse error. I've R&R'd Sysmetrix thinking it may be a corrupt data file but the problem persists. I read some forums saying it's possibly the Weather Channel but Sysmetrix retrieves it's data from NOAA. Does anyone have a line of why this is happening? NOAA's weather site still uses the same 4-character METAR codes and they don't mention any changes.
