Problems finding your station on the wundermap or station list?

By: Kari Strenfel , 5:42 PM GMT on July 09, 2014

Hi PWS owners!

If your station is reporting just fine but you cannot find your station on the wundermap or the station list, it is probably getting flagged and removed by our QC process. We have to sanity check all of the data that comes in from our personal weather stations, to ensure we are displaying reasonable data on our map. However, occasionally some things slip through the cracks, like some erroneous data appearing on the wundermap or accurate data being removed from the wundermap. This is because we have to compare the temperature at your station to nearby stations, to validate the data. If the temperature at your station is significantly warmer or cooler than nearby stations, it will get flagged by the QC algorithm and removed from the map and the station list. But when coastal or elevation influences are present, the temperature may actually vary significantly. It is very hard to capture these real temperature differences, this is why we have been working so hard to improve our QC algorithm.

We should be launching the new QC process this week, and hope to reduce the cases where accurate stations are removed from the station list and the wundermap. Alternatively, we may see some other problems that arise. We know that whenever you try to fix one problem, other problems become more obvious. So please comment here on this blog if your station wrongfully disappears from the station list and the wundermap. We will continue to tweak the QC algorithm to improve your experience.

Note that this is not an issue with the PWS dashboard error message that shows a red triangle with the message "This PWS is not reporting". This error message is because Weather Underground has not received recent data from this PWS. When this happens, you need to check your weather station software to make sure your Weather Underground station id and password are entered correctly. And also check your internet connection and power to the station.

Thanks for your feedback and support while we continue to improve the experience for our PWS owners. Please comment on this blog with any concerns or suggestions you may have.

I know this is an old post, but Im having this issue currently. I live in a low part of a valley, with my pws mounted close to a creek. Not sure if those conditions cause the data to deviate from nearby pws. But I have no idea how to correct this.

I am getting the same internal server error that potosiweather commented about yesterday. It happens on the second page of the PWS registration when you click the submit button. I sent a message to website support - hope to see it fixed tomorrow morning!

My station KCASANDI100 has been displayed on wundermap for many months but lately it is not. According to this and other blogs, station may not be displayed if its data is off compared to other stations. If this is the case, there will be a QC flag next to the station name indicating the reason. I checked my station and there is no QC flag. Furthermore, gladstone family weather madis evaluation shows green thumbs up for all data. Don't understand why my station is not displayed, please check and let me know where is the problem.

Unable to register for a station ID. Everytime it comes back with "internal server error". Very frustrating. It is a brand new weather station and we are not able to see the information. W-0900-ip

The other night and again today my station is not showing up on the Weather Underground map even though by going to the station URL the data is being transmitted. I see no issues with my data, either the other night or today. It sure would be helpful if it is the QC process that is deleting stations that the user could be given a reason why it is getting flagged. Station ID is KMDUPPER25.

My data from my PWS Easter Suddie, Munlochy IUNITEDK186, appears on your website, but the station is not showing on the Wundermap or Station list. I understand that this may be due to your QC algorithm as described on this page: finding-your-station-on-the-wundermap-or-station-l ist

Can you check please?

Hello.. This clears things up for me.. I was calibrating the Rain gauge .. and it read 6.05 inches when i was done... I also had the 5in1 Inside where it was about 20F warmer then outside...
we had no rain today.. this is why it disappeared ... how do i get it back on the map as i have made the adjustments i needed for accurate rainfall..

My "Goldstar" station KWAPUYAL24 has been missing for a while now. It seems accurate to the other "Quality" stations in the area. I know the data is getting through, my personal page works. Kind of a bummer...

My station appears on the Home Page so my data is being verified but my station does not appear on the Regional Radar or Precipitation Maps which do show a number of stations in my area. It used to appear a month or so ago though I sometimes needed to zoom in on my neighborhood and wait until it showed up,

I finally got my station (KCATWENT13) to report this AM after finding a space at end of Station ID in MyAcurite app. Station is reporting but has dropped off the map. It appears to have numbers very similar to nearby stations. I am perplexed.

Update: 10:32 AM Now it is on the Web and Tablet map and list but not the phone app. I guess it is just a bit flaky.

Weather station is accurate and listed as reporting. However it is not on the station list and WU Map. Ironically other less accurate stations are listed.

Hi, my pws is located in a valley, for this reason, measuring a temperature, compared to the other area of weather stations, more high at day and low at night. The pws is called IROMASAN3 and is a Davis Vantage Vue. Please fix it. Thank you!

My station KCOLOUIS35 has readings consistent with stations near it. It shows in the station list, but no longer shows up on the Wundermap; About 2 weeks ago, it stopped showing up there along with 1/2 to 2/3 of ALL stations that used to show up before. It would be nice to know what your QC rules are and even better if you would share with individual PWS owners why their station is not included in the Wundermap.

I have been having issues for a while now with my weather station ICHESHIR64 in that although it has been reporting consistently apart from the odd time when my internet connection is down the update times indicated do not match the output frequency of the station. The station has now disappeared from wundermap and the station list despite having been consistently reporting for several years. I have never noticed any significant variation in temperature recording compared with that of other weather stations in my area.

I have moved to a new location and followed the instruction on this situation.New station ID,address,etc.My PWS will not come up when I search for it.I can scroll down to the bottom of the screen on a nearby station and it is listed there.
Another problem,my PWS is not shown on my Member Account Info-(ICON).
Also when I set up my PWS at this location I had to pay for a new membership,- I was already a paid member.
Thank you.I have been a member since 2004.

Hello, believe the station KMDPINEY2 has been erroneously dropped. It is on the edge of the river so it tracks to the water's influence on the highs and lows, similar to other stations in the area on the water.

My station (KCOEVERG46) has been consistent with those around it at the same elevation, so I don't know why your algorithms booted me. I selected my weather station specifically because it was advertised that you could get your data posted on weather underground. My station used to get hundreds of hits a month, but now that is down to just a trickle, probably because it is not showing up on the map consistently.

Bummed in Evergreen,

Please consider adding my station KAZSCOTT80 to the larger maps. I am in an area with many trees and much grass so a few degrees cooler than surrounding areas. My rainfall and wind speed are low due to location.

Hello Again! Ok so I just read some more blog posts and realized that incorrect time and dates lead to qc removal... So... I checked my time and found that I had forgotten to change my time for daylight savings! So I'm assuming that's the problem. I have corrected my time settings! Please review my data and consider adding me back on to the map. Thank you! :)

Good morning... I believe my weather station (kmewinth5 Lakeshore Dr) has been pulled from the map by the qc algorithm. I assume it must be due to higher temperature readings than surrounding stations. I am on the side of a hill and I'm a bit encapsulated, and the sensor does get direct sun in the morning hours. So temps do tend to run a bit higher than others, but I believe the sensor is appropriately placed and functioning properly. Please advise on whether this is something that you can correct electronically or if there is something I need to do on this end. Thank you!

My station KGAROME7 isn't showing up on the wundermap anymore. My temps are typically in line with the other nearby stations. In the hottest part of the day, it reads a bit high, but the rest of the time it seems accurate.

I have 2 AcuRite 01057RM Pro Color Weather Stations reporting on Weather Underground, one in Missouri and one in Colorado. Last week, I noticed that I could no longer find my Colorado station (KCOFRISC10) on WunderMap and it would not appear on the change station list. After checking the station, I discovered that the aspirating fan was not functioning, causing higher temperature readings than surrounding stations. I replaced the fan assembly and the temperatures are now tracking nearby stations. Now, unless I expand the WunderMap scale greatly, my station is still not listed. I had a similar problem with my Missouri station (KMOCOLUM25). I recently had high temperatures on this station and found that spider webs had disrupted air flow over the temperature sensor. After cleaning and clearing the webs from the 5 in 1 sensor, temperatures returned to normal and my station reappeared on WunderMap almost immediately. There are no other stations near KMOCOLUM25. Is the reason that the KCOFRISC10 station has not reappeared on WonderMap due to the fact that so many other stations are clustered around it? Thanks

My station sometimes disappears from the station list and the WunderMap, mostly for a few hours. I measure with calibrated sensors and a professional weather shelter. Due to the good aeration, the station responds very fast compared with other stations in the vicinity, especially in the morning and in the evening. Furthermore, due to the topography my location is definitely significant cooler than the immediate vicinity.

Also, many private stations on sunny days measures too warm. Thus, the algorithm throws just outside the stations that have a good radiation shield (!!!) and good measured values.

Please tell me if the temperature is the reason or whether there are other problems.

Our weather station is sitting on top of the pier system over lake Michigan. Currently the Air temp has been verified at 65 where the stations around us are 75 because they are up the hill and not as close to the lake. Can you please put the icon back for KWIRACIN28. Racine Yacht club.

I'm not sure why my station (KCOLITTL203) was taken off the map. It's a new station so I have watched it closely and found it to be remarkably close to nearby stations with the exception of the Barometric Pressure witch takes 14 days to calibrate. I have made a note of it on the PWS page. Does your QC process automatically put the station back on the map or do I need to do something? I have also noted that the data on the PWS page is not always from my station (Comparing data I'm sending and data displayed on page) not sure what to make of that.

Station off map again. looking at the data I can see that the Temperature change without considering the time involved could be misconstrued. My station only reports every 15 min. Hope this info helps in your tweeking.

My PWS (KTXSIDNE2) seems to be reporting close to others around me, but does not appear on the map or list. Had a few problems in the beginning, so it may have been removed before I fixed them. If it could be placed back on the map/list, I would appreciate it. Thank you.
