The Foreca Weather History API provides observational weather information from the past by showing measured weather parameters in a certain location at a specific date.
The API delivers all the measured weather parameters as both daily summary values and hourly values. The queries can be made based on a given day and coordinate point. The API will respond with observational data from the nearest relevant weather station or from weather forecast model data (augmented observation) in JSON format. Augmented observations are provided when the closest weather station with sufficient observations is too far away to give representative information.
The weather history service includes measurements from the following official weather stations: SYNOP, METAR (Records from 1st of January 2011), with augmented observations for all SYNOP and METAR locations from approx. mid-January 2016 and augmented snow depth observations from 9th February 2016.
For more detailed information, please complete the contact us form on the API's homepage, and a Foreca team member will assist you.
Eighteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Internet of Things Weather, and Recognition. Highlights include the Microsoft Azure LUIS language processing API and several weather APIs from Foreca. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
