Weather API Documentation

Leverage our powerful Weather API to do amazing things!

With our Weather API you can retrieve current weather observations from over 45,000 active weather stations, historical weather data for the past 10 years from our archive of more than 120,000 stations, and highly localized weather forecasts for any point on the globe using the world's most trusted weather models!

You can look up weather data by many methods including:

  • Latitude/longitude
  • City name
  • City ID
  • Weather station ID
  • Airport ICAO code
  • IP address
  • Postal (zip) code for any country in the world
How do I get access?
