Last night, I was looking at the current weather, and there was precipitation where I live (zipcode 48307)

I did a few pulls for the current weather and saw there was .7" in precipi observation.

Now that it's a new day, I look in yesterdays history and there's 0 listed under daily summary. How do I get yesterdays total rainfall?

The current condition call used the closest available personal weather station. The history call, unless otherwise specified, uses the closest airport station (they have the most complete histories available).

Not all airport stations have precipitation data. But if you do the history call to the specific PWS, then you'll see it correctly.

Thank you William. Thought I might be going crazy.

Well..... I still may be, but at least I got this figured out now.
