this is not going to be a very positive post, unfortunately.
First bad news – WU is discontinuing the free API keys. You guys know I´ve always been quite negative towards WU, and I knew why… the deal is – you now send them data, which they then sell to others, starting from 800 dollars a month. And if you want the API key yourself, you can pay and you will pay for getting your own data – what a business plan. It is probably not known exactly when the forecasts etc. will stop working. Meteotemplate does not rely exclusively on WU, there are other APIs used, but many scripts do use WU so I guess these will stop working and I will then have to delete them, because I do not think many of you would be willing to fork out 800 USD a month for your own data. If you consider stop sending data to WU, then keep in mind you would also have to stop CWOP, because they scrape it from there too.
There is unfortunately an obvious trend where free APIs – be it WU, Aeris, GoogleMaps etc. are a thing of past.
Second thing, I have, for now, stopped issuing any new download tokens 3 days ago. This is a result of several things that happened or are ongoing, which I do not want to go into. I am not saying this is permanent, but right now I cannot promise when this will be restored.
Hope you have a nice weekend despite these rather bad news.
