Thank you for the info, realized that some of my personal projects were affected.

 

Sadly, it seems like there are no direct replacements for this service.

It makes raw METARS very hard to obtain now...

What kind of weather products did they offer ?

 

RAW text METARS and TAFS.... really useful for programming as they provide direct data

There's an alternative site ( https ) and after a few hours the old site was up again :-)

 

At least my ELITE and PSX METARs are already being correctly downloaded :-)))

That one! Sorry for the late reply Keven.

 

Anyway, they have put the old site back up 2 days ago. You should be able to D/L again from there, but we just don't know for how long :-/

You could also try AvnWx... it's a really good website with RL METAR, TAF & PIREPS (when a Pilot posts one).
