The National Weather Service (NWS) API allows developers access to weather forecasts, alerts, and observations, along with other weather data. The API is based on JSON-LD for linking data and contains GeoJSON endpoints for mapping applications. The API enables applications to gain forecast and weather information by geolocation, points, weather stations, products, zones, offices, gridpoints and alerts. The NOAA National Weather Service (NWS) SOAP API is also available.
In recent years, weather has become more extreme. Luckily meteorology and weather data retrieval tools are improving every day. Developers looking to build applications for weather can check out these popular APIs that are listed in the Weather category on ProgrammableWeb to suit their needs.
