Not sure what forum to put this in.

 

As we are looking at renovating, and we are in a high wind area I thought I'd get a weather station and get some wind speed recordings before we get to the details on things like window coverings or the like where wind ratings might be important. I've got an Ambient Weather Station WS-1001 clone (from Trade Tested) and the setup itself was a breeze.

 

I created an account on wunderground.com to upload the weather data, but it is only working sometimes, and failing more often than not.

 

As I'm sitting here right now I can see that it updated 12 seconds ago, but it was about 20 minutes before that, and nearly an hour before that, and prior to that it was updating around every 4 minutes or so. When it fails, I receive an incorrect station ID or station Key error:

By way of comparison, here is a successful one:

The password in these rejected attempts is the same as in the succesful one, as is the station ID (IWARKWOR5, for anyone who wants to see how windy it is at my place). Does anyone else here have any experience with this? I have logged a ticket with wunderground as well.

Strange, all looks fine to me..

 

 

 

Side note, Love wunderground, have found it to be slightly more accurate for looking into weather related customer faults :)

Edit: It seems that the issue is with wunderground.com. I found another forum with a wunderground.com section that is full of 'why are all the uploads failing?' threads from the last week or so.
