Historical API does not always return a min and max temp for a given day

Occassionally we will have a group of zip codes that do not return a min and max temp for the prior day. For instance zip code 46996, using a date of 20120508, the mintempi and maxtempi values are blank. If I use that zip code on the wunderground site itself, it shows the historical data for that point. Is there a way to fix this or a work around for when it does happen?

Actually, in the case you mentioned all of the values are bad. It looks like that reporting station went down on May 7:

Unfortunately, we have no way of knowing when that station is coming back online.
