precipi (precipitation in inches) is usually a floating point number. But 3/9/12 CA/San_Francisco returned a value of "T" for the daily summary. I'm guessing that means just a trace of rain. Kinda messes up my xml parser. My real quesion is what other exceptions should I be prepared for?

Yes, T = Trace. That's the only letter value that will come through that field.
