Forecast API

  • Swiss precision weather data delivered through the high-speed meteoblue weather API
  • Instant access to over 100 weather variables of forecast 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 Forecast API uses nowcasting and the meteoblue Learning MultiModel (mLM) to deliver up to 14 days of hourly forecasts at maximum accuracy. You can assemble your own weather forecast API calls by combining pre-defined packages of weather variables.
