    Have you configured to use your PWS?  Just enabling the service doesn't tell it which PWS to use.  You need to click the arrow and you can tell it which ones to use.

    I have been having the same problem. I have had an API for years and 

    I just read on:

    https://apicommunity.wunderground.com/weatherapi/topics/end-of-service-for-the-weather-underground-api

     

    It looks like ALL API have been discontinued unless you pay for it.

    I have been getting the "Could not get specified stations data" error on the web portal of rainmachine.  All looks fine on the mobile app with NO warnings but NOT on the web portal.

    My location had 6 inches of rain last week but its only showing tenth of an inch of rain and still watering.  So clearly it Rainmachine is not getting the data from my weather station.

    Data is showing correctly on Weather Underground website.

    It’s supposed to be active until Feb 15,2019 but I don’t think that it’s working. I’m going to have to figure out a way to get my ambientwearther system working with rainmachine. Maybe they will make it work with CWOP

    The station data download doesn't need API key only the forecast. We will probably come up with a updated version for Weather Underground once the new API is released.

    If the station doesn't need the API theb can you explain why I had 3 inches of rain one day and another 2 the next day but on the rainmachine graph it is only showing .8 inches each day.

    Thank you

    Are you looking correctly at the RAIN tab in Web UI > Settings > Weather > Weather Sources or you are reading the Forecast Precipitation from Dashboard ?

    Ha found a setting hidden away under program to not run the program if you get a certain amount of rain. Never thought too look there. Changed that and will see if it helps.
