API Update: Minutely Precipitation, and Snowfall Nowcasts
We have added support for retrieval of a next hour forecast ("Nowcast") for precipitation, and snowfall at a minutely resolution.
Next Hour Forecast
The Next Hour Forecast API has been added to allow for retrieval of an accurate next-hour 60 minute forecast for precipitation, and snowfall. The API sources data from radar, and model data to produce a nowcast for the next 60 minutes for any location in the world.
Retrieve The Next Hour Forecast, Along With Current Weather
We have also added support to the Current Weather API to retrieve this 60 minute forecast (Nowcast) without an extra HTTP request. Simply include the following field in each API request:
The additional forecast will appear as an additional field in the JSON response ->
"minutely": [ ... ]. Please note that inclusion of this field will result in a deduction of 2 total requests against your plan quota.
We hope that you find these API updates useful in your business, and personal applications. Please contact email@example.com for any questions or feedback. We would love to hear any feedback you have, or any improvements you have to suggest!
