    Error downloading from DarkSky since 7/4

    I am again getting errors downloading from DarkSky. It last succeeded on 7/4. Running 3.0.1.19 on HS3 3.0.0.548 (Windows). Have they changed the interface again or is it a local issue. The only data I am trying to extract is forecast info for today and tomorrow, if there is a better source. Here is the error:
    weatherXML Error downloadFile: Dark Sky Condition from: https://api.darksky.net/forecast/API...lerts&units=us. Error: The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a send.

    Must be local. I'm not seeing any issues.

      The url request being sent is "https://api.darksky.net/forecast/API/35.1667115,-106.5314776?exclude=minutely,hourly,alerts&units=us". The API should be replaced with my DarkSky key, but starting a week or so back it no longer substitutes the key. How can I fix this? If I substitute my key for the API tag I get a valid XML string returned.

        I am having this same problem where "API" is not being substituted for the actual key. When I use the URL with "API" replaced with the key it returns data - when I copy the URL that has "API" in it - it gets permission denied. Anyone resolve why API is not being replaced?

          I never did get an answer and I finally turned off WeatherXML since it is worthless as it stands. I would really like to have it working again since I had a number of scripts which depend on forecast data.

            That's just so weird. My WeatherXML/Darksky are working perfectly fine and I haven't touched it since it was first implemented. Not sure if there's a different subscription model, but using the free version.

              Darksky has been bought by Apple and my understanding is that WeatherXML is at end of life. So... one of the other weather PIs is a choice as is a personal weather station and the appropriate plugin. I chose an Ambient PWS and the AmbientWeather PI. I've been pleased, but I'm hoping for some enhancements... we'll see when the HS4 dust settles.
