Occasionally, web server updates will cause some users to experience errors when attempting to load our web pages, either on a phone or a computer. Perhaps radar data or climate data won't load, or you may see "Point forecast not working" messages, or something similar. We had one of those updates on Friday, May 24.

Many times, all that is needed is to clear your browser cache on the device that is having the problem.


For PC/Laptop web browsers:

  • Clear/Delete your cache (CTRL + F5).
  • Open your browser settings, then in the search bar, type "cache". Select "All time" for your time range, then "Clear Data".
