Hi! Thanks for a relativly good API.
A few questians. It seems like wind_gust is allways 0 and precip_1hr_metric is allways -9999.00 in the current conditions. Is it because they are not set?
Sometimes you use "N/A" as not availeble and sometimes just "NA". Could you please make it either or.
The precip_1hr_metric is it for the comming hour or for the past ??
I miss fields like wind_gust and visibility in the hourly dataset. Is it possible to get them there??
I very much miss more marine data like water temp, waveheight, swell.
Thanks in advance

-9999 should be either NA or NULL. Its the value from our backend when we don't know what the value is. We don't like N/A either and in future versions are going to make it empty or NULL. The precip_1hr_metric is the precip over the past hour. We're working on adding data to the hourly data, and also seeing how much marine data we can work into the API.
