The weather site that "commercial aviation" use to make safe fly/nofly decisions has been down for at least 30min.

Was kicked out yesterday. Requested a new password after I could not log in any more. After receiving the new password I logged in without even having to enter my details. Kicked out again and then could not log in with the new password. This morning still not working. Requested a new password again, but now my username does not exist. What is going on here????

Who can I contact or phone to try and sort this out?

Am I the only one? I can't access the following pages/data :significant weather charts-blank page
Metar page-blank
TAF page-blank
Radar pages- not available
Spot graph page-today only

Looking at accuweather: cloudy with thunder showers. It would be nice to compare with the official weather info before flying today.

I have experienced a similar issue before, which I usually solve by:
-> closing all browser tabs that are open on aviation.weathersa.co.za
(You will notice that if you bookmarked for example the radar image, just opening the bookmark will not work after a while).
-> Now go to the home page: aviation.weathersa.co.za and log in again - if you were logged in, log out and in again.
-> You should be able to access these pages again.

Im having major issues for 2 weeks. I login in, view the radar images. Then if I go back to the radar it shows the red text error message. I then cannot login afterwards for ages. It's so frustrating.
