Effective at the end of May 2018, Earth Networks will be changing the way we receive data from your personal weather station. We are discontinuing the Earth Networks PWS program but will continue to integrate your data via the NWS CWOP network.

"since we're discontinuing the old PWS system around the end of May" - I wouldn't pull the plug before.

Seems like a lot of "free" systems are closing down recently. Conforums is pulling the plug on all its forums, notice was very short and they don't have any way for forum owners to download the posts  :roll:

Seems no one responded....the former Weatherbug was pretty clear:

"PWS Publishing app partners will want to remove the "WeatherBug" feature from their publishing apps by the end of May and direct PWS owners to send data over NWS CWOP instead."

Because this message string did not specify Weather Bug, I didn't find it and asked about it.
