Local Weather Data Temporarily Unavailable
« on: October 31, 2008, 10:24:17 PM »
When you see this dont panic. Its normal and it happens to everyone once in a while. It simply means the emulator did not get the data it needed. Sorta like when the intellistar says Temporarily Unavailable. This could be from several reasons.

1. Firewall or security program is blocking the emulator from getting data
2. NWS or other data source is down
3. Issue with your network
4. Slow connection- could not download all the data within the required time

If this problem persist for OVER 1-2 hrs then post here. The emulator downloads new data every 15min so in most cases it will go away at that time.

I'am still having that problem. It won't fix itself
Wish I had a WeatherSTAR 4000. Brings back memories.

Were you able to run your emulator before or has it always been like this?

I now have it working correctly :twothumbs:

The problem was the coastal waters forecast.

Can't do them for Lake Erie

the coastal waters forecast is for the atlantic/gulf/pacific waters.. the great lakes follows a different structure.. but if it will be used, i can include it!

Okay, I've never been able to get the emulator to work. Just to see what would happen, I left it running for about 3 hours - Still no data. I reviewed the config and everything looks okay. Is there anyway I can get this to work?

Think we found the problem. Your coastal forecast is in capital letters. Thats messing something up. Make them lowercase
