27 June 2018 – Removal of TLSv1 – PCI compliance

Hello,

To maintain PCI compliance of our website, we have as of today removed support for TLSv1 SSL connections to the website. This will only affect users who are using old non compliant browsers or users of windows 7 that are not fully updated.

If you do experience problems please ensure that Windows 7 has Service Pack 1 installed and that all recommended updates have been installed. Please also ensure that you are using an updated browser that uses PCI compliant connections to the web.

Best regards

12 May 2018 – 1800UTC Forecast Delay

Hello,

There is currently a 3 hour delay in the production of the Forecast Model Data for the 1800UTC forecast output. We will post any updates on this as they become available. A delay of 3 hours may result in model run being cancelled as the delay may impact on the 0000UTC output.

Update at 1840UTC – Model data output is now completed. Forecast production has now commenced. Anticipate the 1800UTC output to be on the website by 1900UTC

Best regards

Planned maintenance 19 – 20 Feb 2018

The NorthSeaWeather webserver will have a full hardware upgrade while being re-located to our server administrators new Data Centre.

Synchronization of data between the servers will commence around 2000UTC on Monday 19th.
Once the old and new servers are synchronized there will be a period of downtime as network re-configuration is carried out. There may be delays in the forecast updates after syncronization commences and the completion of the network switchover. It is advisable that users retain a printed version of the 1800UTC forecast isue as backup during this time.

If network administrators encounter any problems during the switchover we will keep you informed via our facebook or wordpress blog and Twitter account. We will inform you once the transfer has been completed and operations return to normal.
Thank you for your cooperation and patience.
Best regards
