CIMIS: does the parser work at all?

    And my answer to myself is : yes, it works. It looks like API has changed and the only way to retrieve most of the info is to specify station number and have "customStation" box checked . If the box is not checked , it tries to retrieve data by geo coords but  the only data available by coordinates is

     'day-asce-eto', 'day-sol-rad-avg'

    Is it still working/not working for you?  I signed up with CIMIS today and retrieved and pasted my API key into the Rainmachine configuration and listed my chosen 3-digit station number in the station field, and checked the box for custom station, and it's set to retrieve 5 days.  When I click refresh, the last successfully updated text doesn't update, on the configuration page. On the "Weather services" part of the dashboard, it says "Error: can not open url" in the status section. 

     

    I'm getting the same error on Wunderground configuration also (Error: can not open url) despite having my Wunderground API key entered that I have from my PWS.

    To answer my own question now, CIMIS seems to have successfully loaded/parsed? I may have not clicked the "Save" button after generating my api-key on the CIMIS website the first time, so when I went back, it didn't have a key listed. I generated it again and this time clicked save and copied to the RM settings and shortly thereafter, I received a notification on my phone that CIMIS weather data had been updated and I noticed "Success" on the weather sources page.

    Still no luck on WU. .

    Something is still wrong. I can download data from CIMIS using the URL from the rainmachine log but I do not see any new data points in weather plots even though CIMIS source shows as successfully updated. Also , I see this error right after I run CIMIS update manually:

    PRESSURE value 1.8 less than limits minimum of 50, invalidated.

     It looks like units dont match somewhere . Thank God we are not landing on Mars
