Is it possible to only return 'temp_f' and 'weather' properties from an API call, rather than all of the data?

I'm working with a microcontroller and all of the data returned from getting the current conditions overflows the object I have to work with. I'm really only interested in getting the temperature and weather (cloudy, rainy, etc)

We do not currently have an option to limit the return of an API call. I will let the development team know that there is interest in such a feature.

I would also appreciate such field filter functionality which some weather services already offering. When calling the Wunderground API with many services, then the output is huge, even though we would need only a few fields. This bad according response time when the user has bad internet connection.

I would "third" this request, specifically with Excel =WEBSERVICE formula users, as there is a character limit inherent within excel and many calls simply return a #VALUE! result due to exceeding this limit.

Thanks!
