How to request cumulative total (daily summary) API

Hello I am new to this service and I am trying to get API code that will get a daily accumulation of rain, not just at a specific hour but for the whole day. I have some code that works for another API service but it only gets the current forecast that was given at that past time. That data is not accurate enough since it is like sampling only some of the data and not all of it. 
How would you ask for the daily accumulation of rain precip at a specific place and time, such as 3 days ago?
The other API worked somewhat like this:
forecast.io/APIkey/Latitude,Longitutde, UnixTime
given those parameters it should find a past record of the current weather and rain intensity.

I am also looking for which variable gives the total rain, the documentation does not have clear comments.
