I have a developer-key plan, and I am trying to pull 8 weather every three minutes, I know I have requested 8 weather, but I have got an email saying "exceededrate: maxrate: 14 (of 10)". I am not sure how 14 is counted?

So once I have used one of the the raindrops, is that letting me pull weathers with out checking my pulling limits? Because I am confused why and how I used one of the raindrops by requesting 8 but says I pulled 14. And I am not sure if I am exceeding my limit for every next 3 minutes pull, even thoung I am requested 8. I guess it will help if i can find out how 14 is counted even though I have requested 8 within a minute. Thanks.

I got the same thing and had to implement some cacheing to prevent the same location from being submitted more than once per half hour. That stopped the raindrops from being taken, but the daily rate is still incorrect for my api key.
