hi all,
http://api.wunderground.com/api/f3ce0818a2e20bcc/history/q/pws:KWAWASHO33.json
I am making a "history" call  with the url above for pws and getting the following values :

wspdm: "-1608.8"
wspdi: "-999.9"
wgustm: "-1607.4"
wgusti: "-999.0"
wdird: "-9999"
wdire: "North"


any idea what are the negative values?

Thanks,

Thanks, any idea what are the other ones (-1607.4 )?

Does this mean that this PWS is broken ?
How common is that?

no, that's a mistake, -999 mph converted to a metric unit
