This is possibly another topic for discussion, but I do notice now, however, that I have our local high school WeatherBug station selected (even though it is out of service) but WWL is displaying weather information for the next city closest to me which is 15 miles away. When I put my zip code in for WWL, our high school is an option. On WB, it is not even listed - as it is out of service. It is listed only when it is in service.
I have contacted WB on our high school’s WB station status and they said they are waiting for some type of “part” for it and they are not sure when it will be up and running. It has been down for several months.
Then should the line the says “My Hometown High School” (underneath “update”, “now”, “hourly”, “daily”, etc.) on the WWL console also change to indicate where the feed is coming from, like “Next Town Over Airport”, instead of staying with the originally selected feed name when that feed is down?
I see that it is not on the list now, also. A few days ago it was (on WWL) and I selected it. I checked WB, but it was not on the list. Perhaps is was up and running for a moment and I caught it then. Maybe the heading remains fixed on it while getting the data feed from Kirsch. Presently, the heading is still on “Three Rivers High School” while getting the feed from Kirsch. I’ll check periodically and see if/when it comes back online and keep you informed.
Yep, the data feed is displaying the proper station name – “Kirsch Municipal Airport”.
I can check the station code and display the weather station name from the data feed if the station codes do not match. In your example, that change would cause Weather Watcher Live to display “Sturgis, MI (Kirsch Municipal Airport)” for your station. I’ll add this change to my to-do list.
