Hello,
I use YoWindow weather widget and it works for three years now without any problem

http://www.meteoarachova.com/weather/yo.html

I am facing a problem the last five days. The Forecast Panel is empty.
Is there a problem with it??
If yes, How can this be fixed??

Thank you in advance for all,
Alexandros

Hi Herman, Hi Alexandros,

264714; Aráchova/Greece is in the database.
The ID is ok.

However the forecast isn't.
This needs to be investigated further.

But this isn't a bug, so I have moved your post to Unreliable METAR stations (Weather expired)

Will be continued,
Fred

Hi friends,

I'm a little bit irritated ... the widget (and also the widget on the Yowindow site) shows weather expired.
BUT on the desktop version the forcast is OK :%)
So I checked the METAR LGBL and the data are also actual :oops:

So I think it is not a problem of unreliable METAR station. Any idea?

Hi Werner,

I know the title reads Unreliable METAR stations.
We were having requests from users who had just added a location and were having a problem with that location.
Most of the time, it was an unreliable METAR station.

But this sub forum is for problems with a specific location.
This location does have a problem.

The forecast shows on the Desktop and on Chrome.
The forecast does not show on the Widget.

I am in the process of trying to find out why.

Hopefully, the problem with this location can be resolved soon.

Hi Marty,
We were having requests from users who had just added a location and were having a problem with that location.
Most of the time, it was an unreliable METAR station.
You remember I wrote my fears about this growing problem?

But in this case the Metar delivered the data otherwise it wouldn't be possible to see the forecast on desktop and chrome.
So the question is: why not on the widgets?

Today the forcast on the widgets is OK !
