This station KWAYELM12 is in YELM but the heading on Wunderground indicates McKenna, WA and the forecast for my station is showing KWARAINI3 which is Rainier, WA. I'll update here when I find out how things are configured. Sent an email to Wunderground.

Wunderground has kindly answered. There are many stations within a 10 mile radius of Yelm, therefore, we share forecast information.

"Our site places stations to whichever location's center it's closest to. This can sometimes lead to erroneous results, and we'll continue to work on that. It's particularly difficult when two locations are just a few minutes apart."

Thanks William!
