PWS Goes Missing And Has Corrupted Data

I recently noticed that my PWS is having problems uploading data to Wunderground. Locally, my data looks fine, but my Wunderground PWS page is very corrupted. See
https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=KCASANJO428
I've noticed I'm getting overlapping lines for all my data points (e.g. two temperature lines, two pressure lines, two solar radiation lines, etc.), and on previous days, my data is dropping out at at about 9 pm Pacific time, which midnight UTC. My local logs show that I'm continuously uploading data to the API correctly, but the Wunderground PWS isn't always correct.
Sometimes when I load the page, I get the double lines, which given the time offsets, it looks like the data is trying to be plotted as UTC time, rather than local time. Other times, when I load the PWS page, the data looks fine, and other times, it says my PWS is offline. (About half the time it says it's offline, 30% it's online but incorrect, and the last 20% it's online and correct.) My PWS is also disappearing from my profile page as well.

I have no idea what's going on here. I don't think it's anything on my side. Is anyone else having this problem?

I'm having a similar issue.  Missing data points and now previous days that had good data are showing blank pages or graphs that don't render properly.  Started last weekend.  Using AcuRite PWS and my data is uploading to their portal just fine.

Thanks for the heads up.  I'm a server admin myself and this sounds like my worst nightmare.  Hope they can sort it out.
