Hi there from the Weather Underground API Transition Team.
We’d like to reiterate a few things and let you know of a few small timing changes as we move closer to the previously announced retirement of the Weather Underground API:
  • Based on the response to the previous announcement as we neared year end, we have extended the retirement date to February 15, 2019 to allow you more transition time.
  • All Weather Underground API keys will stop working on February 15, 2019 unless otherwise agreed upon with Weather Underground.
  • All credit card charges for existing Weather Underground API subscriptions will stop on December 26, 2018.
Personal Weather Station (PWS) owners/contributors will continue to be eligible for a free replacement API service selected from our standard IBM/Weather Company standard offerings that contain:
  • Current observations from the PWS network
  • 5 day daily forecast
  • PWS historical data
  • PWS lookup by geocode, zip code and location
  • Call volume: 1500/day, 30/minute
You can check out our PWS contributor replacement API documentation here.
If you need higher call volumes, you can still sign up for a paid API subscription plan from The Weather Company.  Prices begin at $200/month. To have a representative contact you or to request a demo, please click to fill out the contact form.
Finally, we are humbled by the loyalty you’ve shown us during this difficult transition period.  Thank you for your continued support of the Weather Underground community.
With gratitude,
The WU API Transition Team

Until the next 24 hour period starts.  I don't know the time of day or zone for that rollover.  I managed to lock myself out one afternoon while testing some code and it was working again the next day.  My guess is midnight Pacific time.
