recently hourly10day API stops provide 10-days forecast for some locations, for example: http://api.wunderground.com/api/API_K...
but this one still works:
http://api.wunderground.com/api/13bec...

what happens?

If you look at both url's you will see that the only difference is the API-key.
The first url has NO API key, therefore no response.
The second url has API-key and then you get response.
If you open the first url in a browser you will see the message

keynotfound
this key does not exist

That doesn't look empty though. What are you seeing as empty?

I seem to be experiencing the same problem, but it does not appear to be related to a specific station.
Out of the last 100 hourly10day API calls (made roughly 2 to 3 hours ago) 22 returned an empty result.
By empty I mean what is shown in the screenshot below.


Retrying the call few minutes later returned a fully populated xml.

I guess this is a problem more than a question

Both your urls work absolutely fine for me, no empty fields as far as I could see.
Then I change the url's ending from xml to json and again full content, no empty sections.
