"Lost" a station

I have been using a homemade db4(? with 8 vee shaped 'whiskers') bowtie antenna now for a few months and it works pretty well. Yesterday the weather station(WFTV) I was monitoring for hurricane info was gone. The only real problem I have had with this antenna was during thunderstorms and the signal would be intermittent. But now it is clear and sunny. So far as I can tell nothing has changed to affect it.

Here is a link to my TVFR:

I don't know if there is an explanation as to why it would suddenly drop out. But any ideas would be great.

If any more info is needed, please let me know.

Thank you very much,

edit: The antenna is in my attic of a one story house...
