National Weather Service API (api.weather.gov) NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) provides national weather data as well as past data.
Get pinpoint accurate ground temperature estimates for any location, on any day of the year. The most accurate method available between 0.4 m and 180 m depth (beside direct physical measurement, of course).
The weather affects everyone in the world. Access to accurate forecasts helps us plan our days, farmers plan their crops, affect travel plans and flights, and much more. Weather APIs keep us connected to the most up-to-date weather information available from the resources we depend on.
A weather API connects end-users to data providers that aggregate and process complex meteorological data and compile it into regional forecasts.
Weather APIs can produce historical, current, and forecasted data at the press of a button on the user’s endpoint. GET requests are sent to the data server, and the API parses and returns the information to the user in near-instantaneous time.
These APIs are refreshed many times a day in order to keep up with ever-changing atmospheric conditions. APIs in this category not only deal with specific weather data, like temperatures and rain forecasts, but other key features that affect the world, like tides, moon phases, and sunrise and sunset times.
Everyone in the world can benefit from knowing what the weather will be like on a day-to-day basis in their area. For example, farmers need to understand how the weather will affect their crops. Travelers are interested in what to pack for their vacations. Airlines and the boating industry need to watch out for storms. In short, the forecast affects every facet of our lives.
Just a century ago, we depended on almanacs to determine what the seasonal weather may be. Less than two decades ago, we were at the mercy of newspapers and meteorologists on the nightly news to plan our upcoming days and week.
Today, we can see how the weather will change on a minute-to-minute basis, all thanks to weather APIs and the service providers they connect us to.
A good weather API should have a clean code, easy-to-use programming interface, and connect to regularly updated servers that provide end-users with the most up-to-the-minute accurate information about the changing world around them.
All Weather APIs are supported and made available in multiple developer programming languages and SDKs including:
Just select your preference from any API endpoints page.
