The Foreca Weather Warnings Feed is a data feed of the governmental severe weather warnings. The feed integrates weather warnings from many national warning systems worldwide and presents them in a harmonized global offering. The feed is an additional module that can be activated for Foreca Weather API, Weather File Feed accounts or delivered as GeoJSON files.
When queried with coordinates, the Foreca Warning feed returns a sorted list of active warnings for the given location by importance. For each event, the Warning Feed provides the generic significance level, generic warning class, and a more detailed event description. The original data from the official sources is also included.
The generic codes developed by Foreca are meant to ease visualizing the end-user services, while the event descriptions provide more specific textual information.
Governmental severe weather warnings are currently delivered from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the United States. Tailored, forecast-based warnings can be provided globally.
