Package API

  • Swiss precision weather data delivered through the high-speed meteoblue weather API
  • Instant access to over 100 weather variables of forecast, history and climate data
  • Tailored to sector-specific use cases in agriculture, renewable energy, aviation and other fields
  • Several temporal resolutions and altitude levels available for every point on Earth
  • Multiple weather models and real time observations combined with state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms

The Package API uses nowcasting and the meteoblue Learning MultiModel (mLM) to deliver up to 14 days of hourly forecasts at maximum accuracy. Up to 14-days of hourly forecasts and more than 35 years of history are available. You can assemble your own weather forecast API calls by combining pre-defined packages of weather variables.
