the old WU api is going away
and there is no replacement for the almanac data

there is nothing I can do about that

re getting the new api key to use the 5 day forecast and conditions data from selected WU station ID
you get that via clicking on the link in WD
you might need to log out of WU and then log in again and you might need to use internet explorer browser

Brian:
The "Click here for link to API key" just takes me to my settings page.  No api info at all there. I have logged out and in as well.  Firefox, Edge, Chrome, Opera, IE
Thanks

I never had to get or purchase an api for this.

If you didn't have an API key before, linked to a pws uploading to WU, I don't think you can get a new API key?
It's meant to be fun. . .

oh, that is not very good if that is the case
I thought the requirement was just that you had to be a a PWS uploader/submitter

The requirement for a new key is you have a PWS uploading to WU .. I don't know if you had to have a prior WU API key.

Send a note to Victoria victoria.gardner at ibm.com and ask...

I think I am, here's a direct quote from the forum: "Personal Weather Station (PWS) owners/contributors will continue to be eligible for a free replacement API service . . ."

(Unless "replacement API" implies "to replace your old one".)

Ken's right, try Victoria: victoria.gardner@ibm.com
