I recently upgraded from free tier to Drizzle and tried accessing weather history but I get a notification from WU saying that I have exceeded the limit of 10 per minute.  Here is the message:



Your wunderground API key (xxx) exceeded its allotted usage today by making 39 calls within a minute but the limit is 10.

This feature_id has been disabled for the remainder of the day: history.

We check usage for 24-hour periods based on U.S. Eastern Time.


The plan you are registered for is Stratus - Drizzle, granting you 5000 calls per day with 100 calls per minute limit for all of the features in the Stratus package.

Details: exceededrate_history: maxrate: 39 (of 10)

Time: Wed, Apr 18, 2018 16:15 UTC


Thank you,
