When requesting multiple features, some are missing

When I make a query like 
http://api.wunderground.com/api/[KEY]/forecast10day/hourly10day/yesterday/q/37.77,-122.395.json
chaining together the requests for the 10 day daily forecast, the hourly forecast and the observations, I'd say about 1% of the time one or more of these is missing. Sometimes just the history is missing, sometimes one of the forecasts is missing...Sometimes all are missing! The json header always lists the features as "hourly10day":1,"forecast10day":1,"yesterday": 1 even if these come back as blank. Do we know why this happens and would not asking for multiple features at a time decrease my chances of this happening? ... Possibly unrelated but I also had cases where the temperature forecast was present but the rest of the forecast was null...some of the forecasts, like daily average/max/min humidity, were (troublingly) zero rather than null, but things like rainfall were null. One case even returned "yesterday's" observations from 1970 and forecasts from 2015...

And to put some numbers to this, around 11% of the time I put in a request, my daily observation summary is from January 1 1970 (saying fog - 0, rain- 0, snow- 0...)
