We released a file that made bad city matches and is creating load problems on the API.  We identified the problem and are fixing it and should have stability in under 30 minutes.

Has this been fixed yet? 

Apparently the weather station i use has moved from the South of England (UK) to France?

This was fixed within the 30 minutes mentioned.  The PWS should be in the same place still

I still don't think its quite right, 

ICRAWLEY7 should be in West Sussex in Crawley, South England, whilst the weather info and long / lat looks correct. it has:- 

display_location": {
		"full":"Framzelle, France",
		"city":"Framzelle",
		"state":"62",
		"state_name":"France",
		"country":"FR",
		"country_iso3166":"FR",
		"zip":"00000",
		"magic":"242",

Since 2 days, I have issues with animated radar GIFs for 
  • Brentwood, MO
  • Delhi, OH
Any idea if this is related to this?

Don't think so, what's the URL?

Thanks for replying. The direct URL to the GIF is 

http://api.wunderground.com/api/INSERTAPIKEY/animatedradar/q/OH/Delhi.gif?width=600&height=600&num=4&newmaps=1&radius=75&noclutter=1&smooth=1&timelabel=1&timelabel.x=30&timelabel.y=30

This results in an "Internal Server Error". The other locations beside those 2 work fine.

FYI I temporarily solved it with querying the ZIP code instead of state/city

Zipcdoe was a good idea.  Those cities changed in our database.  I've added them to a problem list to be reviewed and addressed.

Something is off. I noticed London has disappeared from the UK list (https://www.wunderground.com/weather-forecast/UK.html), despite it being searchable.

I also appear to have moved from Lincolnshire to Ireland, and my brother-in-law from Leeds to Ireland.

 "display_location": {
                "full":"Dunbur, Ireland",
                "city":"Dunbur",
                "state":"WW",
                "state_name":"Ireland",
                "country":"IE",
                "country_iso3166":"IE",
                "zip":"00000",
                "magic":"130",
                "wmo":"03967",
                "latitude":"52.963985",
                "longitude":"0.041469",
                "elevation":"68.9"
                },
                "observation_location": {
                "full":"freiston, Freiston, ",
                "city":"freiston, Freiston",
                "state":"",
                "country":"",
                "country_iso3166":"IE",
                "latitude":"52.963985",
                "longitude":"0.041469",
                "elevation":"13 ft"
                },

I believe, its not only the API.
No matter, which PWS in Essen, Germany, is selected, I will always receive information about Kessenich, Belgium.
For example try these links:
