Hi Inna,

Welcome to YoWindow.

Could you supply us with the following for some of the cities you are looking at?

Click on Location > Properties for each city.
Supply us with the GeonamesID and the City Name.
Supply us with the METAR icao code.

Once we have that information, we can check out each city.
Thank you in advance.

Marty

Hi Inna,

I moved your topic to Weather Expired.
Weather Expired is for Locations with a METAR station problem.

YoWindow uses a weather source that tries to find the closest 24 hour a day METAR station for a location.
There are three 24 hour a day METAR stations for your locations.
There are also some local METAR stations that operate a part of the day.
Your 4 locations are using the same METAR station.
That is why the current conditions are the same.

294071; Netanya/Central Israel/Israel - is using OJAM
293397; Tel Aviv/Tel Aviv/Israel - is using OJAM
294801; Haifa/Israel - is using OJAM
281184; Jerusalem/Israel - is using OJAM

Here is a list of METAR stations near your locations.
OJAM - Amman-Marka International Airport - Amman, Jordan - 24 hours a day
OJAI - Queen Alia International Airport - Amman, Jordan - 24 hours a day
LLBG - Ben Gurion International Airport - Tel Aviv, Israel - 24 hours a day

LLSD - Sde Dov Airport - Tel Aviv, Israel - Down 7 hours a day 21:00 thru 02:00 UTC
LLHA - Haifa International Airport - Haifa, Israel - Down 10 hours a day 18:00 thru 03:00 UTC
LLIB - Ben Ya'akov Airport - Rosh Pina, Israel - Down 12 hours a day 16:00 thru 03:00 UTC

Select your location.
Click on Location > Properties.
You are able to replace METAR station OJAM with one of the above.
Let us know how these work for you.
Also let us know what METAR station you are using for each location.

Thank you in advance.

Marty
