Weather History API

Enhance understanding of weather history and patterns for better decision-making.

    Accurate, Trusted Sources

    The Weather History API allows users in many industries to review accurate, coordinate-based weather history data across dozens of hourly and daily parameters. The API promptly retrieves weather history data from SYNOP stations, METAR stations, and several augmented observation sources — giving you the best weather intelligence available:

    • SYNOP stations, mainly reported from the ground or seas worldwide; includes records from 1st of January 2009
    • METAR stations, mainly reported in airports worldwide; records from 1st of January 2011
    • Augmented observations for all SYNOP and METAR locations from approx. mid-January 2016
    • Augmented snow depth observations from 9th February 2016
