Extended Forecast configuration error
« on: June 07, 2020, 12:30:50 PM »
When I try to build my configuration for my Phoenix area, when I enter "Greater Phoenix Area" as the county into the "Extended Forecast", it tells me this: "Data from NWS does not provide tabular Extended forecast data for this Zone number, please try another zone.", even though this page; https://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?w0=t&w1=td&w2=hi&w3=sfcwind&w3u=1&w4=sky&w5=pop&w6=rh&w7=rain&w8=thunder&w10u=0&w13u=1&w14u=1&AheadHour=0&FcstType=digital&textField1=33.9246&textField2=-116.126&site=all&unit=0&dd=&bw=&AheadDay.x=63&AheadDay.y=16, suggests otherwise. Is this a bug, or am I overlooking something?

Hi,
When you try and configure this, try and use Zone AZZ543 which appears to include Phoenix.

Unless I'm crazy or something, AZZ543 does not appear in the county list from the scroll down menu. Instead, the "Greater Phoenix Area" is listed under AZZ023, which gives me that error message, as well as anything involving "Maricopa County", and some other counties listed. Does this mean I can't configure an "Extended Forecast" for Phoenix?

I added a Zone to the bottom when you're inside of Extended configuration. Select "543" in Arizona's list which I had labeled "Try This for Extended".

That worked, but now when I try to run the simulator, I get this error message:
"Run-time error '-2147220850 (8004028e)':

I'm sorry if I keep bothering you and for the double posting, but I got the problem to fit itself, but it just now dawned on me that I'm seeing several hours outdated information in the "Current Conditions" segments. Strangely, I'm seeing currently correct information on the "Local Airport Conditions" segment for the same location, "Phoenix Sky Harbor Int'l". I'm really sorry if I sound like an idiot (although I'm new to this), but is this a common problem?
