Having the same problem here I think...

Here is what my forecast page looks like:

http://weather.sterlingrun.com/wx2.php

Just to be sure, I retraced the steps to create this...went to the NOAA site, to my location, but do not see "Printable Forecast" anywhere on that page anymore - after re-reading the instructions from carterlake, it says to use the URL from the printable forecast..

Here is my NOAA page:

http://www.erh.noaa.gov/ctp/index.php

My forecast page has worked beautifully for a long time (and was working at 5am this morning), and I have not changed anything....but I know there have been quite a few issues lately with NOAA's site - and they are getting hammered right now due to the storm.

Looks like with the storm, they pulled alot of data from the stream, Here in pa the printable screen is also gone, and if you goto NOAA's site and look at others along the coast it is the same. as they pulled the plug on that part for now. So guess we have to wait and see.

I was having intermittent problems starting yesterday afternoon.  Yesterday, the server that NOAA was using wasn't even pingable for a while.  Late afternoon, mine started to work again until early this morning.  Hasn't worked all day.  I also checked the server and the printable forecast was nowhere to be found, but, I could access the server it used to be located.  I manually put into a browser location box and noticed that the http string would redirect to an entirely different server and would pull up a "non printable" 7 day forecast.  Sure hope they get it fixed soon...

I would say its simply that the noaa server is overloaded, with everyone checking it, because of the severe and widespread winter weather pattern occuring, yes?

Without a doubt, they took down parts of their site like the "printable forecasts" which messes up everybody.

Here is what i have been seeing:
If you goto your NWS page for your area as for here it is http://www.erh.noaa.gov/ctp/ and you click on the map it redirects you to http://www.crh.noaa.gov/zones/PAZ024.php?zo=1 but of course it is not showing the city names only the counties. which is the Central Region Headquarters is where they have everone hitting.

I have noticed a change in the use of the weather icons also - now the POP is listed underneath, where before the POP was part of the icon image....

Stan,

If you notice on the NWS site, when you type in your zip code (or city/state), it redirects you to the crh.noaa.gov site, rather than the erh.noaa.gov site.  This is probably the reason for the POP listed underneath.
