Weather data from a station shows in but not in the API? Just a beginner, but using's website, I can get information for San Isabel, CO - code is USCO0503 or USCO0503:1 - but cannot figure out how to access this same data through the API. Any help would be appreciated! Weather channel website link:
This API call should show this station, but it doesn't???

Our API will return the closest available station, but has a slightly different system (TruPoint) for both forecasts and conditions.

Since the data isn't from a particular or specific data (it's interpolated and calculated from many stations), you can't request it through our API.

That explains why their data never matches yours. Thanks!
