21 July 2016 Connectivity issues

Both BT and Plusnet are experiencing connectivity issues meaning some NorthSeaWeather clients are unable to access their services with us. The issues though are directly with BT and Plusnet and all NorthSeaWeather services are operating as usual at this time, however updates may be delayed due to this issue. If you are with either provider and experiencing issues please check their service status pages here:


25 April 1900BST – Website Connectivity Issues

We are presently experiencing connectivity issues with the website data centre. This has been reported and we are awaiting news. Forecasts will not be updated until we have established a stable connection.
I will update with further news.

0100BST Sun 26 April – Due to denial of service attack issues , connection to the site is very erratic, preventing the upload of large data files. Investigations to the cause and finding a way to upload the data are being explored.

Model Data Delays 19 December 2014

NCEP is currently experiencing delays with posting model data to it’s servers resulting in delays of around two hours. They are currently investigating the issue. Will update this message once the problems have been resolved. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused. As of 1500UTC NCEP are posting all model output on the 2 backup servers. These servers are slower than the operational servers, resulting in delays of up to 2 hours in model output. 2200UTC The NCEP back up servers are degraded with model output currently running in excess of 6 hours behind. Currently it is intended to abandon the output of the current model. We will continue to monitor the situation, and update forecast output as soon as it becomes available. NCEP currently anticipate this degraded situation to persist over the weekend.

20 Dec 0400UTC – NCEP Primary data feed is now back on line. Please accept our apologies for the delays during this time.
