The following API request is reporting temperature 30 degrees higher than outside. The weather is coming from a PWS that is likely have been abandoned.
The PWS is reporting 29 C degrees, all PWSs around it report -1 C.

This problem is there for a week already.
We and our users rely on Weather Underground. Please start to verify PWSs reporting quality.

Hey, Brendan!
I wonder if there's any system on your side that is monitoring broken stations. Or it all works via manual complaints?

Thank you for taking care about this particular case.
