ZIP 60064: website data not matching with hourly10day API

  • Updated 5 years ago
When comparing the WU website with the hourly10day API, it looks like the returned hourly data from the "hourly_forecast" object is not matching the temperature data of the website
Website, NWS: 9pm: 9F
Website: BestForecast: 8pm: 9F
hourly10day: temp/english: 11F
http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/f...
http://api.wunderground.com/api/MY_KE...

Questions:
1) which data source is being used for the hourly10day API: NWS or BestForecast or something else?
2) Why is there this difference between API & website?

Thanks,

Bjoern

I'm having the same issue with all tested locations. Any response from WU on this subject?

Many thanks.

Answered in another thread: We are running 2 forecast systems right now. We are testing our new and improved system on the site, and will be rolling it into the API soon. They will be different until then.
