Weather API Features

Historical Weather API

Our service provides wide variety of historical data products ranging from simple hourly/daily data for weather fields such as temperature, precipitation, and wind to derived products such as evapotranspiration, heating/cooling degree days, and solar radiation. This includes the following API's:
Our Historical Weather API's include data for all of the following basic weather fields
  • Temperature
  • Apparent Temperature ("Feels-Like")
  • Dew Point
  • Relative Humidity
  • Pressure
  • Wind
  • Cloud Coverage
  • Weather Conditions
  • Precipitation
  • Snowfall
  • Snow depth
  • Visibility
  • Solar radiation
  • UV Index
  • And more...
As well as other specific fields such as:
  • Heating/Cooling Degree Days
  • Evapotranspiration
  • Air Quality for all major pollutants (PM10, PM2.5, CO, NO2, O3, SO2)
Historical Data Cleansing and Backfilling
Our Historical Weather API offers back-filled historical data, and is guaranteed to have 99.95% coverage for all the major weather parameters: Temperature, Dew point, Relative Humidity, Wind Speed, Cloud Cover, Solar Radiation, Precipitation, and Snowfall. It uses external sources such as global satellite, radar, historical re-analysis products, and advanced interpolation methods in addition to station observations from over 120,000 stations to offer unparalleled historical data accuracy. This is particularly important in areas with limited station coverage. Read about how our competitors failed to depict a major flooding event in central Uganda with only station data.

Current Weather

Our service provides current weather for any point on the globe derived from +47,000 live weather stations as well as doppler radar. It also provides weather alerts for over 30 countries including the US, Canada, EU member nations, and Israel. This includes the following API's:
Our Current Weather API's include data for all of the following fields
  • Temperature
  • Apparent Temperature ("Feels-Like")
  • Dew Point
  • Relative Humidity
  • Pressure
  • Wind
  • Cloud Coverage
  • Weather Conditions
  • Precipitation Rate
  • Snowfall
  • Visibility
  • Solar radiation
  • UV Index
  • AQI
  • Air Quality for all major pollutants (PM10, PM2.5, CO, NO2, O3, SO2)
  • Pollen (Grass, Weeds, Trees, and Molds)
  • And more...

Weather Forecasts

Our service also offers multiple forecast options. Each API sources the best available public forecast models, as well as radar, and station observations to offer the most accurate forecast possible. The resolution of the models ranges from 1-13 KM, and offers global coverage. The forecast sources DWD ICON 7KM, GFS 13 KM, NAM 3KM, HRRR 1KM, ECMWF 9KM, SILAM, and EU CAMS models. This includes the following API's:
Our Forecast API's include data for the following weather fields:
  • Temperature
  • Apparent Temperature ("Feels-Like")
  • Dew Point
  • Relative Humidity
  • Pressure
  • Wind
  • Cloud Coverage (3 levels)
  • Weather Conditions
  • Precipitation
  • Snowfall
  • Snow depth
  • Visibility
  • Solar radiation
  • UV Index
  • Air Quality Index
  • AQI
  • Air Quality for all major pollutants (PM10, PM2.5, CO, NO2, O3, SO2)
  • And more...

Additional Features.

Historical Data Quality

Historical Weather data sourced from over 120,000 weather stations, with data coverage of last +10 years. Point historical data is available for the past +10 years for any point on the globe.

Our API sources additional information from high resolution historical datasets such as satellite, and doppler radar to deliver the most accurate historical weather data possible.

Hyperlocality

Accurate hyperlocal < 1km resolution forecasts using a blend of the world’s best global and regional models forecasting models, and Statistical/Machine learning algorithms.

Quality Control

Realtime, on-the-fly adjustments, and flagging of data based on live backtesting/verification of model forecasts.

Speed

We guarentee a 200ms average Forecast API response time for Advanced/Enterprise users. (This refers to Server response time. Total request time is dependent on User’s internet connection, and bandwidth.)

Gap Free Historical Data
Historical data is back-filled, and guarantee to have 99.95% coverage for all the major weather parameters: Temperature, Dew point, Relative Humidity, Wind Speed, Solar Radiation, Cloud Cover, Precipitation, and Snowfall.
