Well, BIT was able to start pulling WU data again today (for me) at 4 PM. Hopefully it was just a temporary WU glitch, but I agree with @sebastiantombs that WU has really been dead for a while. For now, I'll continue to feed them my WX data, but when that stops, they're dead to me too, and I'll stop sending them data.
Same here; sometime after 1500 and before 1845 CT it started working for me. :idk:

WU was not updating for about 1 day here (09/21/2022 through 09/22/2022) during which time my WU page was reported as offline, but my station was reported as online. BI Tools could not pull the data off WU during that time. I updated my API key and then waited until they came back.

Well, I'll throw a wrench in the gear works, fer sure. I have my Davis Vantage Pro II connected up to a Raspberry Pi, running Cumulus MX, on my main network. My cameras are running on an isolated network on a Win 7 machine on BI. Anyone familiar with this setup and can offer some thoughts on how to FTP the weather data from the PI to the cameras on BI?

Can that data from the Pi be FTP'd (or saved) as a pure TEXT file?
It can, but my PI is on a different network. I thought about sending the text files from the PI to my NAS, and let BI go retrieve them from the NAS folder. Then I got to thinking that the PI may not be able to access the NAS. I am running Cumulusmx on a headless PI, and my Unix and Linux skills have diminished over the years. I can access it via Putty from my win 7 machine, so I know it can at least see it in one direction. If I try to call up the Cumulus Web page via browser, it cant seem to locate it.

Am I just not getting what you're saying (I'm probably missing what you're saying)? Because I SEEM to have the same set up as you. Here's what I have going:

Main network=Everything that gets to go to the outside world
Private network=All my cams

My BI box is on both networks

If this is what you have, and I'm presuming it is... can't you just share a folder on your BI box and send the text files straight to that folder from your PI?
