Access to 10-day forecast without the full cumulus plan

Is it possible to get access to 10-day forecast data without signing up to the full cumulus plan? Im a solo dev and the cumulus plan is twice the amount of the current stratus plan i'm using and its just way out of my available budget.  Can someone at WU help with maybe a custom set of api endpoints on my plan?

Unless I misunderstand the pricing, switching between stratus/cumulus/anvil does not change the monthly cost at all. The cost is tied to the max number of calls per day and per minute allowed (developer/drizzle/shower/downpour), not the API plan.

Unfortunately for my case it does varies per plan and call limit.  You can try for yourself, the stratus plan at 100,000 calls/day is $200 US, while the cumulus plan is $400 US for 100,000 calls/days.

Strange. Here's a screenshot of the pricing page for my plan:

Oh, I see the problem. You aren't on the developer plan at only 500 calls, you're on the Shower plan for 100,000. When you said "Im a solo dev," I assumed you meant you were on the developer plan.

Haha all good, yeah there is a big jump in cost on the shower plan.  Im not sure what to do, I have emailed support and received no response and im trying these forums see if I can get some help.

Might be a matter of biting the bullet and taking the cost or finding a new API in my price range. I dont really want to change APIs as I prefer the WU service, I just need some help.
