Here is an update we were mailed from WU this morning:

Hello,

Weather Underground is currently experiencing a problem with name
resolution (DNS) to the site. Roughly half of site visitors are taken
to a “Site Under Construction” or an error page when they try
wunderground.com.

We are working feverishly to solve this problem.

In the meantime, you can visit www.weatherunderground.com which still
works.

Sincerely,
Weather Underground Staff
Thanks for supporting Weather Underground!

It does appear that some of their dns issues are starting to clear up. However, our NCL-Weathernet Station here that reports to them is still unable to get info sent to them. Some of our other outlying stations are able to report.

We’ll keep you updated, but expect much of our problems on this end to be resolved later tonight.

Over the past hour or so we have noticed that Weather Underground (www.wunderground.com) [2] which interfaces with our NCL Weathernet stations to bring you conditions across the area, has gone down. It appears they have a major outage. This will limit our ability to get our information to you from our weather stations and from any maps that are provided from wunderground.com.

We have made an inquiry to their technical support department, but as of this post, we have no word on the problem.

Again, it appears they have had a major outage of some kind.

We’ll keep you posted!
