Google weather API not working

Recently google has shutdown their weather API silently which breaks one of my clients first page application name Greenarrow.com.

I think many developers and users were (and still are) outraged, but at least they have some time to breathe as because iGoogle isn’t going away until November 1, 2013. So, there are still one year and three months left to change your favorite weather module. So, there's no point trying to spend time with it.

There has been no official announcement or communication that indicate the API has been closed or going to be closed. But, it is very interesting that iGoogle using wunderground.com API till the service is completely retired in 2013.

If your are experiencing same problem with your favorite application or weather module change the API without spending time to fix that. I think better option to move in to wunderground.com.
