    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 https://www.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXDailyHistory.asp?ID=KMNANOKA10&day=2&month=6&year=2019&graphspan=week&format=0&units=metric, 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

    https://www.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXDailyHistory.asp?ID=KMNANOKA10&month=06&day=06&year=2019&format=1

    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;

    https://www.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXDailyHistory.asp?ID= 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;

    Date,TemperatureHighC,TemperatureAvgC,TemperatureLowC,DewpointHighC,DewpointAvgC,DewpointLowC,HumidityHigh,HumidityAvg,HumidityLow,PressureMaxhPa,PressureMinhPa,WindSpeedMaxKMH,WindSpeedAvgKMH,GustSpeedMaxKMH,PrecipitationSumCM

    2019-6-17,28.0,24.3,20.6,20.9,18.0,13.6,96,75,43,1008,1004,13,0,20,1.35
    2019-6-18,22.3,21.9,21.6,20.2,19.9,19.7,89,88,88,1007,1006,6,0,8,0.53

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