History of All Weather Station Updates


March 4, 2018

The National Weather Service has been upgrading and changing a lot of different protocols. Most of these changes are unannounced and only discovered when a feature stops working. Many of the changes are related to making the content they offer more secure; example, you will see more and more pages load with the HTTPS secure page rather than the plain HTTP page. So now the scripts have to be gone through and changes made to reflect the changes from the NWS.

Below are a list of changes made recently. Most are new additions with some fixes.
