Update 12:00 PM Pacific. The National Weather Service seems back up. All clear. While it was down, we modified some of our code to automatically switch to a backup server should it go down again (the switch was added after the last NWS outage but required some manual intervention). We also took the opportunity to migrate some weather processing systems to newer versions of various libraries to increase our systems reliability. We’re very sorry for the issue.
Heads up that the METAR, TAF, etc. data from AviationWeather.gov (the US National Weather Service) is not functioning properly. Their web site is running but has little or no data. This will affect the METARs, TAFS, Winds Aloft, PIREPS, AIRMET/SIGMET data that all FlyQ apps use when connected to the Internet. Radar and Satellite layers appear to be functioning properly as they do not come from AviationWeather.gov
Unclear if ADS-B weather, which is derived from the same base data, is affected or not.
We’ll keep you updated as we learn more. And thanks Paul 😉
