Global historical weather data & 15-day weather forecast data

The Visual Crossing Weather Data platform uses historical weather records and weather forecast models from organizations to create the most accurate weather picture possible for past weather conditions and the upcoming weather forecast.

To create the most reliable historical weather data for any city or location chosen by the user, the Visual Crossing Weather data process analyzes hourly level weather reports for all the weather stations surrounding a location. The process will then eliminate any weather stations that did not report weather information. After this, the weather conditions are statistically combined to produce a weighted weather report. Weather stations near the target location are weighted more highly than those that are farther away.

For the weather forecast, Visual Crossing uses only high resolution grid-based forecast models from the weather services. This ensures complete coverage whichever city or address the user may choose for an hourly or daily weather forecast.

The data can then be used in our Weather API, Microsoft Excel add-in or our easy to use dashboards including Historical Weather Dashboard, Climate Change Dashboard and Weather Event Planner.
