Hi,

Currently the website is showing 0.04" of rain for today (which is correct), yet the API is showing 0.41" rain for the precip_today_in. What's going on?

But wait, there's more! As it gets closer to midnight, the precip_today_in value is getting LOWER and lower. What the heck is going on?

I've seen it too. I don't have a good answer but I can confirm it doesn't always match.
 
For example currently the website says Richmond VA received 0.00" of rain yesterday (May 29)

However, the API says 0.15" ( http://api.wunderground.com/api/$API_KEY_HERE/history_20170529/q/VA/Richmond.json )
