To 12:01PM ~~ I tried that link but couldn't get to a webpage :(

I'd still like to know where our WeatherBug station went ...

I just checked and it brought me right to it...maybe weather bug was just down for a moment.

I tried that address on two different computer networks. All I get is that the "web page can't be found." WeatherBug is not the same as Weather Ham anyhow. One is an insect and one is a porker.

I just tried it and i got the weather ham as indicated above. Not the same as bug but it is from parkland.

Hamweather has links for Parkland School in Oklahoma, Kentucky, Michigan ..... but nothing for Rochester NY.

I just checked this out again. I can connect to the video cam at Parkland School ( http://www.instacam.com/showcam.asp?id=GREEC&size=S ) but as soon as I click on "Weather" it takes me to the Charlotte-Genesee Lighthouse location. When I opt to switch locations, Parkland School is no longer on the list as it used to be. I still can't get connected to that address posted by 12:01PM ... maybe there's a wet cicuit somewhere. I noticed that Ch 10 no longer shows Greece on their map of temps during newscasts.

I had the same problem with the parkland bug site this weekend. It only let me go to the charlotte location. It calls us hilton.
Still can't understand why you can't get to the ham weather from that link. It is a new york state parkland school link. Here is a cut and paste from the page. try again and good luck.

This Afternoon...Partly sunny with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the mid 70s. West winds 10 mph or less... Increasing to 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 50 percent.

I can't get it to show up either.

"This error (HTTP 404 Not Found) means that Internet Explorer was able to connect to the website, but the page you wanted was not found. It's possible that the webpage is temporarily unavailable. Alternatively, the website might have changed or removed the webpage"

Do you have to become a member and login maybe?

SCATS has been targeted and deauthorized from access to GCSD WeatherBug cameras because SCATS doesn't kiss GCSD ass.

Who says GCSD can't manage information?

SCATS said...

To 7:24PM ~~ Gee, thanks! Actually, I can see the view from the camera but that's all :(

SCATS said...

To 5:32PM ~~ I have tried the link posted at 12:01PM today several times, but it just doesn't connect :(

Dear WeatherBug Friend,

Thank you for your inquiry. I will report this as a "station down."

Please be aware that we have both "Live" and "Nearly Live" stations. Nearly Live stations are operated by the National Weather Service and are often found at airports. We bring you these NWS stations in order to maximize the number of stations where you can access weather data, however as we do not own or operate these stations, we are unable to fix an NWS station that is not operating properly.


ANY station, that is not properly reporting data or is offline will not appear on your station list and WeatherBug will automatically give you weather from the next closest station online. This may be why your 'normal' station is not appearing; it could be temporarily offline or not reporting properly. Please note that occasionally a station’s name will still appear in the list even though that station is offline. This is due to a difference in the times that our various servers update the list vs. the offline station database.

With over 8,000 stations in our network (each owned and maintained by the individual school or business at that location), we occasionally experience issues which may cause brief periods of inconsistent data. WeatherBug is fully committed to maintaining its weather station network, and we have implemented an automated system which alerts our Points of Contact at each station to maintenance issues and outages. This effort enables us to restore service in the timeliest manner. Your email allows us to follow up fully on the specific weather station noted, and to have it back up as soon as possible.

In the meantime while our team works to verify this, please click the CHANGE LOCATION link at the top of the main screen (or if using an old version of WeatherBug, click "OPTIONS") and enter your ZIP code and choose a different weather station. Click OK or SET LOCATION at the bottom to set the new station so you can receive local weather from the closest working station on your WeatherBug.

If you have any further questions or comments regarding this case, please reply using this email.

Sincerely,
WeatherBug Customer Support Team
