Inconsistency between US and metric text

I'm doing some playing around with wunderground as I start setting up my project, and found this odd result. Here's my query

http://api.wunderground.com/api/{key}...

Here's a snip from the current results:

"period": 19,
"icon": "clear",
"icon_url": "http://icons-ak.wxug.com/i/c/k/clear.gif",
"title": "Thursday Night",
"fcttext": "Partly cloudy. Low of 48F. Winds from the SSW at 5 to 10 mph.",
"fcttext_metric": "Clear. Low of 9C. Winds from the SSW at 10 to 15 km/h.",
"pop": "0"

Note that the icon says clear, the metric text says clear, but the non-metric says partly cloudy!

It's not a major issue, but I thought you'd like to know about it.

Interesting! I'll share this with our forecasting team.

They forecast developers are looking into how to fix this bug. It happens when changing the forecast over to metric.
