During the day I've been checking on the condtions at various places around the country using the "Your Weather" map page on the Met Servce website.

 

Tonight I've been getting

Oops! Something went wrong. This page didn’t load Google Maps correctly. See the JavaScript console for technical details.
message when I try to zoom or do anything with the map.

 

The Java script console tells me

You have exceeded your daily request quota for this API. We recommend enabling billing to get a higher quota:
Apparently you get 25,000 maps loads per day for free then you have to pay.

 

I've tried on a different browser and also a different device and get the same result.

 

Am I correct in assuming the Met Service has subscribed to the free servoce and has execeed their 25,000 limit. I know I haven't accessed the site 25,000 times today. smile

I was ok, but I only checked 23000 times :-)

 

I checked the app a few times today and the website as well, maybe 5 tines, no issues

It worked for me during the day it's just been in the last hour or so i've had issues and only on the "your weather" page. The weather radar and 3 day rain forecast pages are fine.

 

Initially I thought it might be browser related but I was able to disprove that.

 

Perhaps it's tied to the ISP?

Perhaps unprecedented demand as weather events hit the north island and for the last few days the weather barons have been predicting massive rain events for Canterbury.

 

I guess everyone is waking up to the fact they should be checking Metservice rather than relying on the unreliable data preinstalled on their devices that use historical averages and are updated less frequenty as the local weather bureu.

It's working again now. 

 

Yep, was probably due to the significant number of hits they'll be getting

It's coming your way especially if you're in the Tasman/Golden bay areas.
