Weather Underground API update - consequences for MeteoBridge?

Post by Ooievaar » Sat Jan 12, 2019 11:15 pm

Hi,
There has been an announcement from the Weather Underground API Transition Team that "... all Weather Underground API keys will stop working on February 15, 2019 ...".
Will that have any consequence for MeteoBridge users who upload the weather data to Weather Underground?

Thank you.

No, the pre-15 Feb-API-key was only used to get forecasts a.s.o.

Uploading uses id and station-key.

For graphs and reports there are scripts which load your data from the WU servers, again without any API-key, only the WU stations-ID is used.
How te get your data from WU after Feb 15 is still un-defined.
