Weather Forecast Data

Included in Point forecast API

Available for all plans

Weather forecasts are provided by Meteosources's machine learning technology, which uses a multitude of different weather models but minimises their errors, resulting in extremely high accuracy (read about our AI weather forecasts). Predictions are available for any location on Earth.

  • minute-by-minute forecast for the next hour
  • hourly forecast out to 7 days
  • daily forecast out to 30 days (including text summaries)
  • average weather statistics and astronomy data
  • severe weather data in the US, Canada, and EU

Best-in-class accuracy

Our data are approximately 5% more accurate for a 2-day forecast and 12% more accurate for a 7-day forecast. Forecast accuracy is based on temperature, clouds, and precipitation forecasts errors. A higher percentage means better forecast accuracy (100% -forecast without error- is unachievable).
