Forecast Delay 00UTC 9 April 2018

The Forecast model data output is currently running 2 hours behind schedule. We anticipate the midnight issue forecast to be available around between 0100-0200 UTC

Please accept our apologies for the delay.

Planned Maintenance 6-7 Dec 2018

On the evening of 6th-7th of December maintenance will be carried out on the Northseaweather server, which will unfortunately involve a short outage of our service between 11:30 UTC on the evening of the 6th and 04:00 UTC on the morning of the 7th, however within this window we expect the service to be unavailable for less than 60 minutes.

We will monitor the situation and post any updates here on our off-site noticeboard.

Apologies for the disruption and inconvenience caused by this.

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
