Daily Data

This endpoint provides historical daily statistics for a geographic location. The data provided through this endpoint is aggregated from multiple governmental interfaces.

Daily data is coming in with an offset of about one to seven days. However, some data might be added multiple days or even months later, depending on how the different weather services are updating their datasets. Additionally, Meteostat provides daily aggregates based on hourly observations.

Daily data can be queried for a maximum of 370 days per request.

Endpoint

Daily data is provided through this endpoint:

GET https://api.meteostat.net/v2/point/daily

Parameters

In order to query data for any location you’ll need to specify the lat and lon parameters. You will probably also want to add the alt parameter to your request to make the output more precise. If you do not set the alt parameter, Meteostat will detect the elevation using its own elevation model.

ParameterDescriptionData TypeRequiredDefault
latThe latitude of the geographic locationFloatYesundefined
lonThe longitude of the geographic locationFloatYesundefined
altThe elevation of the geographic locationIntegerNo0
startThe start date of the query (format: YYYY-MM-DD)StringYesundefined
endThe end date of the query (format: YYYY-MM-DD)StringYesundefined

Examples

The following example requires the cURL command-line interface. Alternatively, you can use an API client like Postman.

curl --header "x-api-key: {key}" "https://api.meteostat.net/v2/point/daily?lat=33.749&lon=-84.388&alt=336&start=2019-06-01&end=2019-06-30"

Please replace {key} with your personal API key.
