I'm looking for a service that provides hourly historical data for 24h and back. I am currently interfacing openweathermap.org but had to find out that not all stations provide this feature.

Are there any other free services that provide this data?

  • The lack of data might be due to the weather station itself not capturing the information, in which case it won't be available from any source. Looking through NOAA's land-based datasets (probably ASOS or AWOS) is a possible source. – Erica Oct 7 '14 at 23:46
  • Thanks for the NOAA link - but that only includes US, no? – El Dude Oct 8 '14 at 17:23
  • Yes, if you're interested in global (or indeed anywhere non-US) then it won't work :) – Erica Oct 8 '14 at 17:47

You can try finding a station on Wunderground that fits your needs and then use their API to get what you want.

  • Ha, underground looks useful but costs money unfortunately. Good call though, I'll look into it :) – El Dude Oct 8 '14 at 17:30
  • They have free accounts, how many calls do you need per day? – camdenl Oct 8 '14 at 17:45
  • Yes, I believe i should be good with the free quota, I'm only worried with 10 / minute. Anywho, I'll give it a shot :) – El Dude Oct 8 '14 at 18:03
