Hi,

Some weahter stations are not available through the API.
For example "94363": Emerald Airport Australia
can be found on the website
http://www.wunderground.com/history/s...

We can even download the data via CSV
http://www.wunderground.com/history/s...

But not available through official API
http://api.wunderground.com/api/myKey...
=> response
{
"response": {
"version": "0.1",
"termsofService": "http://www.wunderground.com/weather/a...",
"features": {
"history": 1
},
"error": {
"type": "querynotfound",
"description": "No cities match your search query"
}
}
}

Is it possible to fix so that can download data through you official controlled API instead of the unofficial CSV url?
Thanks!!!

2nd example: Weather station "ZUGY":
OK:
http://www.wunderground.com/history/a...
CSV data:
http://www.wunderground.com/history/a...

but API :"description": "No cities match your search query":
http://api.wunderground.com/api/myKey...

You can do it -- just use the lat / long of the station. For Emerald Airport:

http://api.wunderground.com/api/__YOU...

You can find the lat/long by going to any station or location on wunderground.com and clicking the WunderMap link near the map. The lat/long will be in the URL itself.
