There are times when the internet is down but I have data collected by my vantage vue logger. I have the data in the WL software as a wlk file or in csv format.
I am also willing to customise the format.
I have heard that other wx software can somehow update to WU but I don't use these and don't think I can retrospectively add my data to them?

How can I upload it so it fills in the gaps for my station at WU? Thanks

I'm sorry there is no endpoint to upload data via Weather Underground API.

The feature you look for is available via the personal weather station upload protocol, you can find the full documentation to implement yourself the upload routines at http://wiki.wunderground.com/index.ph...

Thanks. I will give it a go.
I am guessing this is for historical data too?

Had a proper look now.

What I suppose I am specifically after is a way to update historical daily stats - mean max min etc for temp and so the graphs update.

Is there a way to do this?

The way suggested almost looks as if it should be minute by minute.

Could I send two updates per day?
I know the specific times of max and min so I could just upload these?

Just successfully uploaded the max values for one day a week or so ago.
I am not sure if the graphs will update or not though. Maybe this takes a bit more time?
Very pleased though and I have created an Excel sheet that converts raw data rows into the urls.

Unfortunately, I think you have to bake yourself the entire "recipe" to fit your needs since I am unable to suggest the available tools you can gather to aim for the target, even if I may recognize you have successfuly accomplished some steps.
