  • Updated 4 weeks ago

I am a new Davis Vantage Pro/2 weather station owner. I have been able to successfully upload my data to weatherlink.com, CWOS and Weather Underground. But in Weather Underground, when I click on the "Forecast for Midway, GA" link just under my weather station name I receive an "Error 404 Page Not Found" from the WU site. My site is the only site I have visited where this occurs. Other surrounding sites display the nice weather forecast page. Please help a newbie. What have I failed to configure?

I have the exact same problem. Update via weatherlink to WU works fine. But when i want to change the WS in my neighborhood to mine, i get the Error 404 page. I hope there is a solution for this error.

This was because of a location services problem.  The final stage of station ingestion into the system is to distribute its location out into the wider WU world.  I know as of yesterday (11 June 2019) it was still taking at least a few hours for the link back to the forecast to be activated.  During that time, other search-related functions related to the station may also fail.

If it lasts more than say, 12 hours, do let us/me know.  There's an article on the feedback site about the location services issue that will have updates/changes:  https://feedback.weather.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2977006-pws-location-services-issues?b_id=17298

The link to email me/us is at the bottom of that page.

Thank you for becoming part of the Weather Underground community!

I have the same problem with my PWS (IVALDIVI7). I can see the data on my WU dashboard and the station shows up on the map, but when I click on it, it sends me to ERROR 404 (page not found). Any way to solve the problem? And yes! the problem has lasted more than 12 hours. More like 2 days now.

Be patient.  It can take up to a week for a station to fully clear cache.

All new stations go through a process of populating across various databases that make up Weather Underground AFTER they start uploading data.

It can take up to a week for this process to complete, although typically it's less than a day.  While the process is continuing, it is not unusual to see 404 errors when clicking on the forecast page from the station's dashboard, for instance.

If you think you're experiencing something different from that, please let us know at https://feedback.weather.com/customer/portal/emails/new?b_id=17298

Thank you1
