# Daily Data

This endpoint provides historical daily statistics for a particular weather station. 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 and model data.

Daily data can be queried for a maximum of 10 years per request.
