Here is Portland and surrounding area. https://w2.weather.g...cis.php?wfo=PQRIt gives this error.

 

Same thing with Seattle https://w2.weather.g...cis.php?wfo=SEW

 

Gives this message.  Been that way for a month.   The only one working on the west coast is California ones.

The California ones work but the Portland and Seattle ones don't and you get up to last months data at these NOW data site(s).

Thanks for showing one that works!   It's really hit and miss now.  In June the NYC one didn't work soyou couldn't get Central Park data.  I wish I could pay you some (gold) like in Reddit for bothering to reply. The NOW data youget from last months data as far back as the recording station goes.

You have PQR capitalized in the URL. Change it to lower case, and it will work.  :)

Why would that make a difference and if so why does Google show the crap result?  I just type in Portland NWS NOW Data and mine is what shows up.   Your solution saves me a LOT of headaches and grief.   When searching for trade in value 3DS Gamestop Google's top result was something from Jan 2017 but there was no way to know it unless you clicked on the link to the answer as it's pinned as the top answer. There are GOBS of complaints as people are waking up to the long term cancer known as Google but it's a bit too late. It's like closing the barn door after the horses all left and new owners took over and you ask them to find the old horses.  They'll be like ????????

Yeah, not sure why Google is doing that. It's pretty silly. Then again, I'm not sure why the NWS made the URL case sensitive - it really shouldn't be!

http://sercc.com/nowdata.htmlthey fixed their links finally! What are the odds you think they saw this thread?  It was if you clicked on most stations would lead to the key error gen message

https://w2.weather.g...cis.php?wfo=AKQhere's another broken key one  actually your right that uncapping it makes it work!

why don't other forum members use NOW data for reference points?
