currenthurricane: SaffirSimpsonCategory incorrect value for Invest

  • Updated 3 years ago
Invest 91L at 8:00 PM EDT on June 03, 2013 is showing a SaffirSimpsonCategory value of -2. According to your documentation, this should be -4 ("Invest").

Update. Jun 5 2013
Invest 91L turned into a Tropical Storm. Within the same JSON file, the forecasts have the following SaffirSimpsonCategory and Category values:

"SaffirSimpsonCategory": 0,
"Category": "Tropical Storm",

"SaffirSimpsonCategory": 0,
"Category": "ts",

"SaffirSimpsonCategory": -2,
"Category": "Tropical Storm",

'0' is the correct code for a tropical storm. The second item's Category should be spelled out. The third item's '-2' is incorrect.

I just confirmed the bug is still in place as of 10 seconds ago. Has the fix been uploaded to the production server yet?

Actually, the .SaffirSimpsonCategory value is invalid, but slightly different now. Here is the json line.

"SaffirSimpsonCategory":ts,

The value should be numeric, from 0 to -5.
