Today's weather [default module] not correct. Rest of the week is fine.



  • I’m using the default Weather module and have added the api key from openweathermap.

    The module is working OK, and has previously worked perfectly.

    Recently, however, today’s weather has been wrong. Both on Current weather and the Weather forecast. (The week ahead is fine).

    Here’s the config:

                     {
    			module: 'currentweather',
    			position: 'top_right',
    			config: {
    				location: 'Oslo',
    				locationID: '3143244',  //ID from http://www.openweathermap.org
    				appid: '***********************************'
    			}
    		},
    		{
    			module: 'weatherforecast',
    			position: 'top_right',
    			header: 'Weather Forecast',
    			config: {
    	            		location: 'Oslo',
    				locationID: '3143244',  //ID from http://www.openweathermap.org
    	            		appid: '*******************************'
    			}
    		},
    

    The API key is the same. The weather is equally wrong on both Today’s Weather and Forecast modules.

    I’ve done the obvious and checked Openweather map website. The weather there is correct.

    The weather outside is also correct.

    What should I try next?



  • Maybe its not a failure - instead its the data which is served by openwheatermap. Maybe the wheater station they use is buggy - if I check on https://www.openweathermap.org/city/3143244 - there are actually shown 10°. Don’t know, Im from Switzerland - but 10° at midnight in Oslo at November?

    Just an idea.



  • You’re right! An area around Oslo and to the North of the city is showing an incorrect temprature on the site.

    I’ve submitted an issue to them. Hopefully they’ll fix it soon.
