What happens when the query limit is exceeded for both the minute and day query limits? Let's assume there are no raindrops. What is the request back?

When there are no raindrops left, the API key is turned off and you can no longer request weather data from that key.

I see, so what would the response back be in that case? How would the key get reactived?

Once you upgrade your plan to the next level up, the key will turn on. Or, if this was due to a mistake, contact us through our Tech Support to have the key turned back on.

Hi Brendan,
What is the JSON response from the server when a request is made with a disabled API key? Is it an error code? Or a different JSON structure? It'd be good for developers to know so they can develop fallbacks in case they exceed their rate limits for some reason (for example, if their app is so good because they have great weather data from Wunderground, and a lot of users are using the app). Thanks.
