How do I download data from synoptic stations ?
Station Milhostov is professional weather station of Slovak hydrometeorological institute and this station have on the our WuderMap Station ID:  11978. This is code station from WMO database.

But when I click on Visit local weather page for Milhostov,  then I receive information, which has a completely different data: https://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=48.66666794,21.73333359&sp=11...

2,2°C difference is significant !!!

Not all stations have METAR code. How to set up that I do not appear in the XML data from the personal weather stations, but only from professional weather station ?

How to download data from specific stations with Station ID code ? For example from of registered stations World Meteorological Organization 
Prievidza - 11867, Stropkov: - 11976 or  Hurbanovo - 11858

When I want to download data from WMO station via:  http://api.wunderground.com/api/APIKEY/forecast/geolookup/conditions/q/zmw:00000.1.11976.xml
then I not get the data from the WMO station, but only from the PWS:

Dominika,

Wunderground API doesn't always support searching by SYNOP stations. It would be best to get data from a PWS station.
