Has the forecast API changed in the past few days?

Why does the xml forecast request (eg "http://api.wunderground.com/api//fore...") deliver a forecast anymore?

It just produces City data as far as I can see.

There was a location update that has added another observation for that location. When you get an ambiguous search, use the variable to get the city you want:

Great, thnks. That's fixed it.

For future reference, how might I find out about such things (other than be a query failure)?

At the moment that's the best way. The database updates happen at random times when there is enough built up to warrant an update.
