Since last Monday, I can't get the "Reported Weather" from PWS to work. When I click on a station, the normal meteogram display hangs and the map display shows the last data on Monday. It's the same all over the globe, not just my own station. I'm using Chrome.

RE: PWS data stopped working 2 days ago
I don't understand why you are not seeing the issue. All stations across the globe have not updated since 1 July and are still showing the conditions at that time. See my uploaded image showing a forecast NE windflow across Tasmania, but all the stations show the conditions as of last Monday 12 July. . The same problem occurs in Microsoft Edge and Chrome browsers.
I'm a recreational pilot and the Windy app is by far the best online tool for assessing aviation weather conditions. Just brilliant!
The distance planning tool for VFR is great but I have a few suggestions to improve its usabilty:
- allow input of the flight routes (3D) from a kml, gpx or csv file, and make these routes available to use again at a later time
- show the flight path on the vertical profile (above the terrain profile)
- allow printing of the vertical profile to pdf so that these can be viewed on an iPad by the pilot during the flight
