Site News

Following are the changes and updates made to the site, in reverse chronological order. Keep and eye on this page to get the latest information on new features and additions to the site.

Wind and UV readings will be sporadic today, as some work is undertaken on the weather station's mast-mounted instruments.

After a number of rain gauge failures on the existing weather station, the decision was taken to replace the core FifeWeather.co.uk weather station with a more robust and reliable unit.

At 00:34 today, the station's rain gauge stopped reporting data. Fortunately I was able to swap out the rain gauge with a spare, around 11:40 today, but it does mean that rainfall data between 00:34 and 11:40, has not been captured.

This work has now been completed. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Come along to a free and informal evening at the Lochgelly Centre, to hear the story behind the creation of FifeWeather.co.uk.

The component of the website which lists and tweets the Met Office's weather warnings, has been completely re-written, to improve notifications.

A very unpleasant, intermittent 10-second delay in loading the site's home page has now been resolved.

Due to some changes made to the site a short while ago, our WeatherCam page was no longer auto-refreshing the WeatherCam image, as it should have been, every 15 seconds.

We're pleased to report that last night, the infrastructure that runs FifeWeather.co.uk was successfully moved across to new hardware.

Updated 27/10 @19:35: Our provider has now identified the issue on our server and we are working towards a fix. This may involve some downtime late Tuesday evening/early Wednesday morning.


We are currently investigating an issue with poor website performance since early Saturday morning.
