Weather API

We have been using the weather RSS api feed for several years now, using the p option for location by zip code, and the d option to get 5 days' worth of data.

Suddenly a couple of days ago, we began only getting two days' of data instead of 5. Apparently, the rss feed (http://weather.yahooapis.com/forecastrss) stopped returning all the data.

In addition, when I went to the developer site to see what happened, I see that the api is now dropping the p option and using the w option. This is a big problem, since what users are going to know that ID, when everyone knows the zip code?

How long will the p option be available, and what happened to the 3-5 days' of data?
