Yes, I could reproduce it after flushing my cache. Had to wait five
minutes before the queries succeeded, which seems unpleasantly long.
I don't know where that time comes from - the ARM says the default

Faeroes: Southwesterly gale 8 to storm 10, occasionally violent storm 11 at
first in east. High becoming very high, occasionally phenomenal later. Rain,
then squally wintry showers. Moderate, occasionally poor.
