NOAA Forecast Service Not Available

Seeing this error for the past 48 hours: NOAA Forecast Service Not Available

Tried changing the METAR station from the KSFF I've been using for years to KGEG, the local international airport. No change. I restarted the HF and checked to see if there was a newer firmware version, but no joy. Network connectivity seems to be fine.

Grateful for suggestions.

Hi Rocky,

Yes we just discovered this and are working on a fix.

NOAA changed its servers to eliminate the standard http server and replaced with a https server. What this means is that the connection between HydroFLASH and NOAA must now be made using a encrypted SSL connection vs a standard open connection. We have updated the HF firmware to support the new requirements and are currently testing prior to release as I write this.

We will send out a Forum email when the updated firmware is posted here and on the cloud server for downloading.

Thanks for your patience!

Working great. Especially nice to have the HF do everything needed for the update without any manual intervention. Thanks again for the excellent product and support.
