    I'm in the same situation here.  I removed my old API key, and now get this in the logs every five minutes:


    2019-06-03 11:51:51,383 - ERROR - rmParser:133 - *** Error in parser 'WUnderground Parser' while downloading data from, error: HTTP Error 503: Service Unavailable

    I'm also in the same situation, after weather underground shut down the API system, I cannot find any other providers that have actual rainfall data available to the rainmachine system. I'm not sure why we need the API to begin with, I have found that the same data is available via the web, we just need someone smart enough to write a python script to parse it I bet.

    Check out

    its just a CSV spreadsheet of the day, with rainfall data included.

    I'm going to make a new post, hopefully it is noticed.

    Also, the the log of my HD-16, I see the following request going to wunderground; KKYCREST23&day=16&month=6&year=2019&graphspan=week&format=0&units=metric

    Which show the following error: error: HTTP Error 400: Bad Request


    However when I enter that same url directly into a browser, I get the following which clearly show observed data for the past 3 days;


    Probably worth noting that the "KKYCREST2" weather station is not mine. It's just one nearby.
