It seems like 1 in 100 calls to the weather underground api, I'm not able to get the requested ambient temperature.  So I added extra loging, and I discovered that periodically the api is responded with missingkey.  So around 99% of the time the key works, but 1% of the time the same key is reported as missing.  Do you have any suggestions for this issue.  Below is the url I use to call weather underground, and the response.

That is probably because you are going over your API limit, the missing key error is what I get when I exceed the calls allowed per minute.

That should return a 429 too many requests so that a client can back off. Exceeding a rate limit or an expired key are two very different things that require different corrective actions.
