The api call for some stations in my app are showing bad data. The api call says updated on May 29th, but the website shows an update a few seconds ago (June 3rd).

http://api.wunderground.com/api/myapikey/conditions/q/pws:KMICOMST9.json

"station_id":"KMICOMST9",
"observation_time":"Last Updated on May 29, 3:06 PM EDT",
"observation_time_rfc822":"Tue, 29 May 2018 15:06:39 -0400",
"observation_epoch":"1527620799",
"local_time_rfc822":"Sun, 03 Jun 2018 08:43:42 -0400",
"local_epoch":"1528029822",

Now the data seems to line up on this one, but another one I'm using shows "precip_today_in":"", while the website shows .72"...

"precip_today_string":" in ( mm)",
"precip_today_metric":"--",
"precip_today_in":"",
