Help in using the site for historical data

This may seem like a simple question, but I am not a programmer and just trying to figure out how to extract historical data easily.

I've used calls like this below and it provides comma-delimited hourly data.  I really only need daily totals and summing precipitation totals from the hourly data seems to give way too high of results in some cases.

Have you checked the API portal here:

From your question, it looks like you just want to see those results rather than use them in some application. You can do that by calling the History API here:

Please note that you would have to register to get an API key first. Once you do that you can make calls like these to get daily summaries of history data:{API_Key}/history_20060405/q/CA/San_Francisco.json
