We’re having some isses today with the new international API, which may be leading to “Location not found” errors on places that are very common and should be found right away. We’re working on it.
As part of deploying our international support release last week, we also updated the API that umbrella today uses behind the scenes. The old API proved pretty reliable on most days, but was not super specific. The new API is even more specific about weather conditions - so much so that we don’t even have every possible weather condition included in our code yet!
Over time, this will make the UT reports more accurate and more informational, but in the short term, there will be some weather conditions that should either very clearly be a “yes” and we report “no”, or vice versa.
Thanks for bearing with us while we add more codes, and keep sending us feedback when you get a report that’s clearly wrong.
[…] here is a fine quote from one of it’s happy users: “It’s like totally the simplest weather report ever, Julie.” Do you love this site, or what? Do you love Julie’s quote? (I do)
