Hi,m just got a wunderground API usage alert.
It says i used 11 calls/min at 4.30am today.
But i use it only for personal project and call it exactly once per 10 min. Checked all the logs and it is definitely correct.

Is this some-kind of corporate greed play? Sending these emails to all free user and if someone bits great.

Really dissapointed in WU...

Any info...

They did the same to me.

Probably to everyone.

There's no greed to a counting issue.  We will check it out.

Same issue here.  I created an API key a year ago, but never actually got around to building my project, so I have never used it.  I got an alert today saying I've exceeded the 500 daily calls.  Thinking someone else has been using my key, I regenerated a new one.  Within 5 minutes, I received another email saying I've made over 1000 calls.  Seems like something is wrong.

Hi elliott, 
Looks like your key is in use, regenerating a key may have triggered the incorrect second email
You shouldn't see any more problems with the original key shut off

I'm just wondering the same. How many requests to Wunderground are done every time it updates its values? I'm not an expert, but looking at the code seems that multiple requests are made at once. see: Bluestacks TextNow Photomath
