Historical Weather API

Our historical or past weather API allows users to receive weather data from 1st July 2008 until present day.

This weather API would be ideal for companies who focus on outdoor activities. Holiday goers or general fans of the outdoors will be extremely interested to learn previous weather conditions at different times of the year.

Providing this weather information makes the historical or past weather API an extremely useful tool, which delivers past weather data as a reference.

Weather data is available in 1 hourly, 3 hourly, 6 hourly, 12 hourly (day/night) and 24 hourly intervals, with weather easily accessible on a date by date basis. Our historical weather data is forecast data and not actuals.
