report problem on weather underground

After the new update, I did get an API key from weather underground, and set my weather update interval to 1 hour. However, for three consecutive days, I keep receiving emails from wunderground about exceeding my allotted usage, and I am now down to zero "raindrops" according to their message, and probably can no longer use the service.
Below, please find their latest message:

Your wunderground API key (9689092ccc68ca02) exceeded its allotted usage today by making 25 calls within a minute but the limit is 10.

We used one of your raindrops instead of disabling the key for the remainder of the day. You now have 0 remaining raindrops.

We check usage for 24-hour periods based on U.S. Eastern Time.

The plan you are registered for is Stratus - Developer, granting you 500 calls per day with 10 calls per minute limit. To upgrade your plan go to: http://www.wunderground.com/weather/api/d/9689092ccc68ca02/edit.html

Details: exceededrate: maxrate: 25 (of 10)

I'm getting the same emails with the same error. It seems to have happened when I have my Huawei watch in theater mode.

Hello, same error for me. Unfortunately the wunderground is the only service that reports correct pressure at my place.

I'm experiencing the same problem. I even tried to update to a new key thinking that some how the first was compromised but no luck. Hope there is a fix soon.

I think this is being caused by incorrect reporting by Wunderground. I have seen this error many times even though I use Yahoo as my main weather source!
