WUnderground updated station passwords

If  your station has stopped uploading its data to Weather Underground in recent days then it’s probably do to  the change in WU’s password requirements.

In the past you could use your password that you use to log in on the WU membership page, the place where you register a new station.  Now each station is given a automatically generated key which has to be used in the password field of the station configuration for it to be accepted by the server.   This was done to protect your member-login password from leaking by the non protected (non https) communications of your weather station.

Here is a page at WU  that describes where to find your new station ID keys.
