Note and comments for monthly plans

Excel Integration

Visual Crossing Weather offers an Excel Integration that allows user to create weather queries and join weather data with their existing spreadsheet data all within the familiar Excel interface. In addition, the Weather API allows users to create a query that returns CSV data. This data can be directly imported into Excel and refreshed automatically as new weather data becomes available.

Result Limits

Results/day - Free plans include a limit on the number of Queries Results that can be retrieved in any 24 hour period. Note that A single 15-day forecast query counts as a single Query Result while each history record returned counts as a Query Result.

Results/query - The Records/query limit indicates the maximum number of records that may be returned by a single query. If you need more records than is indicated for your plan, you will need to break your query into multiple, smaller queries that fit below your record limit. You can typically break up a large query by breaking the time range into smaller chunks or by breaking up your list of locations.

Locations/query – The Locations/query limit indicates the maximum number of locations that you may request in a single query. If you need weather data for additional locations, you can break your query into multiple each requesting a subset of your location list. Alternately, an upgraded plan will make querying more convenient and efficient by allowing one query to retrieve data for many locations using a single request and returning a unified result dataset for all.
