A capital suggestion.  I did just that and besides being bombarded by a host of utterly useless and meaningless ads, I was able to discover that since weather underground has been assimilated by IBM, they have taken on their core ethic. That is: make money above all else.  To that end, Weather Underground is no longer providing free APIs.
How nice.

What I would like to know, since they are boasting about providing the following: " This package includes one of the highest-resolution weather observation networks that is available in the field based on over 200,000 personal weather stations in addition to traditional sources."

This is yours and my data, uploaded to "Wunderground". So, are they going to pay us for the provision of our DATA?

Hi !
Weather Underground no longer provides API Keys for free.

We're glad to host a place for open discussion about the WU API transition.
 
We'd like to remind our PWS owners/contributors:
 
• Your past data will always be available to you for viewing and download in a web browser on wunderground.com, just like it always has.
• If you are in the small minority of people who use the WU API and a corresponding WU API key to obtain data in .json format, here's what's happening:
- We'll open a registration page for you to get a new API key to get your data in .json format
- You'll sign up and get a new API key for the new API
- Once the registration page is open, we'll keep the old API and your old API key active for 2 weeks to allow transition time to your new key
 
We'll announce in the forum when the registration page opens.
Or, email victoria.gardner@ibm.com to receive an email notification once it's ready.
 
The new API will provide access to:
  • 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
The documentation for the new API is available here:  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1eKCnKXI9xnoMGRRzOL1xPCBihNV2rOet08qpE_gArAY/edit

Hi Victoria. The link on that API page for the “Daily Forecast” API (last in the list) has never worked for me. It takes me to a redirect which then says Google Docs had an error. It’s been this way for a couple months. Does it work for you?

Yes, it does.

Just to make sure I'm checking the right thing, you're following the documentation for the new PWS API, and then clicking on the link, https://goo.gl/QBN6Rc.  Right?

There must be something wrong with permissions.  Thank you for reporting it!  I'll post back here when it's corrected.

Okay, we need to back up -- I just tested it using a non-IBM machine, and got in just fine, so we have a more localized issue.

Have you tried it on a different browser?  Tried clearing cache on your current browser?

I just tried in a different browser and it did work. So cleared my wunderground data from the original browser and now it works too.
