This is due to the NOAA changed URL for weather.

KL-666 has created a fix for Windows for versions (2016.1.1 and later) HERE
IAHM-COL has created a script to fix this on Linux. (2016.1.1 and later) HERE

On Mac, there is not a solution except to update to the 2016.3.0 version, not released yet, still in progress.

Good luck,
Josh
