    I will work on switching to Darksky
    thank you
    You can use WU (since you have a station) if you are willing to do a little scripting.

    Must have been localized. It was (and is) working fine for me.

    Thanks! Now what am I going to do this weekend?!

    Hi CFGuy, I was just looking at that new API documentation and I think you'll have to rename this plugin WeatherJSON I think I may write a C# app to go get at least the local conditions and load them into the existing WU devices for now so I don't have to change my scripts. Do you write your PI code in VB or C#?

    New API doesn't have a lot of the old API features so it might be some work to replace it. Don't see alerts, hourly, tides or radar anymore and PWS owners only get 5 day forecasts.

    I upload to Weather Underground and have for years so where does one get this API key?
    You have to log into your account to get one. The system does not work very well, and it usually requires a few attempts before it works. Some have had to use different browsers.

    You can email Victoria for help, victoria.gardner@ibm.com

    I did not receive one as I don't have a weather station. I am not sure if they emailed the new API keys or if you had to request one.

    The old WU API is no more. It has been shut off and no longer works for anyone. The new API you were given if you have a weather station providing data to them uses their Parent companies API. A lot of the data that I was using in weatherXML is no longer available even in the new API. No more hourly forecast, no Animated Radar image, and no Historical Almanac data. The new WU API will only give you current conditions from your weather station and a 5 day forecast. I am currently working on adding the new WU API as an option, there just won't be as much available as before.

    The new API that you got from WU does not keep the old system working. It is all new. Different URLS, different file format, different file structure. The HSTouch screens are not using WU either. I believe they are using APIXU. Currently, with weatherXML, you have a choice of DarkSky, NOAA, Norway.YR, and a cumulus software created file getting data from a supported weather station.
    Oh well that sucks ;(
    well wait a minute, I really don't care about the default weather in hstouch screens,
    I care more about the WU data I was putting into my Custom screens
    if I remove the API will it allow the WU to work again and download the weather data again?
    Also is there plans to fix this in the weatherxml plug in?
    or is it being disbanded?
