"history" query for future days

Hello,

I have a python app that requests history data for particular cities and writes them to an excel spreadsheet for graphing.

I accidentally requested the historic data for february 25,2014 (today is feb 24!) using:

http://api.wunderground.com/api/mykey...

The query returns results as usual, but since these data points can't be observations, what exactly do they mean?

The link http://www.wunderground.com/history/a...

(accessed @ feb 24) obviously says "No daily or hourly history data available", which is what I expected the query to return..

Later on I thought maybe the returned data was estimated for tomorrow, but then I ran a query for 2 months from now and it also returned data (and THAT can't possibly be estimated)

Anyone knows what's going on ?

Thanks

I wasn't able to reproduce this. If you see it again, please take a screenshot that includes the API link / call in the address bar, and send it to support@wunderground.com

Thanks!
