Can I use ZMW reliable as a key for future lookups?

So I'm looking at the autocomplete API for an app I'm writing in which users can save cities they want weather reports for. If I store the zmw code, will it ever stop working, or are they always valid indefinitely for any forecast calls?

The worst part is when the zipcodes change, which does happen sometimes. We do our best to make those point to new locations to make the ZMW continue to work.
