Forecasts suddenly gone crazily unreliable
« on: October 07, 2018, 09:16:58 PM »
After years of running Wxsim with no issues for my location in Waterford, Ireland today i've started to get crazy forecasts that are totally wrong. freezing rain forecast for the next few days when its 16c outside. Website details here http://www.waterfordweather.com/index.php
What could have gone wrong or what do i need to check???

Regards

I managed to fix the issue i had by using the original files Tom sent me.

I now have another issue where every forecast starts from last Tuesday.

Ive tried downloading files in WXSIMATE and also appending files but still the same problem.

I'm stuck here so any help would be much appreciated

Sorry to be so late seeing this, but did you get it fixed?  It sounds like WXSIMATE was not producing new localdat.txt files.  Probably a simple fix.
