I have know idea where to start. the zip codes in Alaska are reporting the wrong information. Cloc is reporting data from 99669 and not 99603. NOAA may have turned the links to Alaska weather upside down as they just went through an upgrade process that made my weather bookmarks break. I tried 99507 and it did not report correctly either. The way I checked was to type "weather 99603" in google and it agrees with NOAA. Still like the screensaver however.

The way the lookup is done now using weather.gov, they're both coming back with the same reporting station.  It looks like NWS is coming out with a new API effective April 7th, so I'm guessing I'll have some work to do or it will stop working completely for everyone.  :-(

It looks like weather.gov is making some changes. Try the private version:
https://my.roku.com/add/CLOCPRI

Should be v2.5 build 2

Thanks, JT.   But, interestingly enough, 100xx zip code data became available as of about 10 AM EDT on the public channel.

Yeah, something strange is going on.  My data disappeared for a short period and then came back.  They have a notice on their website that their API is changing (soon), so I fear that there are more changes in the works and headaches ahead.  :-)

Had been using this for well over a year .. love it. A month or so ago it stopped reporting the weather. I loaded the private version, which worked with the default zip code, but not mine. Went to weather.gov and it told me closest city, which is a good 20 miles away. whatever service it was using before worked much better. Love this app.

I have been using this screensaver for years and love it. But last week it wouldn’t update and showed the weather from 2/21 @ about 11 pm for a few days and now a couple of days ago the weather completely went away. I have tried multiple zip codes in my area and none of them are working. The zip codes I have been using are for the Portland, OR metro area, 97008, 97007, 97006, 97229. I have also downloaded the private version and neither one is working.

Seems like the weather.gov feed is down :( been hopIng my WX data would start showing up again but no luck... anyone have ideas? RenoJim still around?

Amended: I checked the weather.gov data for 78249 and it's there, so I tried adding the private channel and we're back in business! This is the best screensaver available!

I just got off chatting with customer service as to why the weather disappeared and formatting completely off.  The explanation I received was they are no longer supporting this screensaver and it should have been deleted from the last upgrade.  I notice they now offer both digital & analog clocks, but without options on formatting, or any weather included.  

Apparently the private app is the only way to get the same screensaver we've had for years.  So much "improvement" they're making Roku less, not more, utilitarian.
