Do you need weather data for a specific use case? Don’t want the hassle of setting up an account or buying an ongoing service plan? Maybe you just need your data along with a single, succinct receipt to submit to a 3rd-party for payment. Or maybe you need weather data for a one-off project such as to train an AI, populate a data warehouse, or crochet a temperature blanket. Perhaps you need cross-checked data for legal proceedings.
Whatever your weather data needs, Visual Crossing Weather has the data that you need. We’ve assembled some of the most common weather data use cases below. However, they represent just a small subset of the weather data options that we can provide, and we would be happy to work with you to meet any custom weather data need that you may have. Just email email@example.com with your use case, and we’ll be in touch right away.
Periodic Bulk Weather Data
Standard Bulk Datasets
If one of our standard bulk datasets fits your needs, then this option is one of the cheapest ways to periodically get a large quantity of weather data. These datasets cover a fixed set of locations and are updated on a pre-determined schedule (typically daily). As a subscriber, you can download the dataset as frequently as you want. Below are some examples of the standard bulk datasets available. Contact us to get the latest constantly-expanding list.
- 15-day forecast for all US ZIP Codes updated daily
- Most recent 7-day daily history for all US ZIP Codes
- 30-day “statistical forecast” for all US ZIP Codes
Pricing: $15 per month per dataset
Custom Bulk Datasets
Custom bulk datasets provide all the benefits of standard bulk datasets but with the added ability for you to define your own custom queries and locations. Would you like to be able to download a fresh 15-day forecast for every one of your store locations every morning?

The price is affordable, the access is easy, and the possibilities are endless.
