Weather not updating for the last week or so?

Wed Sep 26, 2018 1:38 pm

My weather stopped updating around the middle of September. I did see a similar thread back in late July and early August, but it looks like that thread was resolved.

I start my log, hit update, and then the log updates a few things (it looks like), but ALWAYS just says SOURCE: Forecast EVENT: Updating and it just sits like that forever. (or at least until I get sick of staring at it) :-)

Also, my forecast (the last time it downloaded) now has really strange info for the wind speed and wind direction.


Is there still an issue with weather?

Have you updated the weather app recently? The one we released in early september was running on a trial license. The current version of weather is running on the long-term license.

My installer is not 'red' on the Weather App, and I'm running v. 5.0.6815.26317

Just verified the problem is still happening.

Did you update your html files with the new Weather variable names?
Can you confirm if the variables are getting updated in myServer?
The version you are running has been working fine on all systems we are aware of.

David, no, I did not update my html files or my text file that gets read out loud... I wasn't aware there were new variables. Is there a document somewhere that notes these changes?

Specific, I need the following, but if there is a document I can read somewhere that states what each new variable actually means, that would be great. I looked at the new variables but am not sure what some of them mean/are.

(these are the old variables I need the new ones for)

{{weather_current_tempf}}
{{weather_current_winddirection}}
{{weather_current_windspeedmph}}
{{weather_current_sky}}
{{weather_current_relhumidity}}
{{weather_forecast_1_nightf}}
{{weather_forecast_2_dayf}}

Best would be to download and install the latest Modern.Tablets.Sample and view the weather scenes in myDesigner and copy from there into your customized user interface.

David, that's a good idea- I will do that for future variables.

Dave, thanks for providing that info for now. That helps me immediately get up and running.

:D
