I have now fixed an issue where some subscribers were not receiving daily forecasts. WxNotify obtains daily forecast data from the National Weather Service API, and for some users, the API was returning empty current condition data for the user’s closest reporting station.

I received reports of users receiving duplicate alerts. The reason was WxNotify showed EMWIN being the primary product source, however the NWWS-OI process was also running. Will add additional monitoring so I’ll know if something like this happens again. Apologies for the inconvenience!

While fixing, […]
