Type in Stansbury on willy weather and the reading shows recorded at Edithburgh. Always used to be Minlaton, when did that change?

Willy has been using Edithburgh for ever Pirrad, but sometimes it is not on and then i use Minlaton. Now i have found BOM Meteye a more useful option as i can zoom in and flick through the time frames. Seems if the forecast is below 20 knots the accuracy is frustrating but above 20-25 they get it right most times. An example of this is tomorrows forecast, above 20, i'm getting exited.

"Willy has been using Edithburgh for ever" as the forecast for Stansbury, NO, type in Stansbury and it always came up as recorded at Minlaton, type in Stansbury now and it comes up recorded at Edithburgh.

Ok, i'll try again. For a period of about the last few months, at times, Edithburgh weather station goes off line. When this happens the Stansbury Willy page uses Minlaton weather station as its closest location. Before this though, for the last 5 years that i have been observing Willyweather Stansbury the data comes from Edithburgh. Hope this helps.
