Migration completed 2018-02-26

Dear API users,

as most of you probably have noticed, we upgraded about a week ago to the new version. After some initial performance problems we managed to tune the caches so it is now handling traffic well.

Some users have reported problems accessing the API, mostly related to not handling HTTPS and/or redirects. If you are getting "Failed to get data from weather api. Reason: end tag name </body> must match start tag name <hr> from line 5" this means you are trying to parse the HTML message as XML instead of following the 301 redirect. We are also working on recommendations for users using HTTPS via local proxies.

In order to ensure stability of our own services, we have also introduced traffic rate limiting (and in some extreme cases, blocking) for some users not abiding by our terms of use. If you are receiving 429 status codes it means you are being throttled, either due to a missing/generic User-Agent header and/or excessive traffic (>20r/s).

Finally, we have noticed there is a lot of production traffic against (which was only to be used for testing) as well as (which has been deprecated for years). We would like to inform you that these hostnames will be removed within a few months, so please update your applications accordingly.

As always, please don't hesitate to contact us if you have problems or general enquiries.

Migration of 2017-12-12

As previously mentioned on the mailing list, we will shortly be migrating the domain to version 3. This has already been done for some users and should be relatively painless, provided you follow the documentation and terms of use. In particular we ask you to notice the following:

  • Use HTTPS only! Unencrypted requests are no longer supported
  • Honor redirects (301 and 303), which is used e.g. from HTTP to HTTPS
  • Semicolon as parameter separator is now deprecated, use ampersand instead
  • Make sure you have a unique, identifiable User-Agent string

Otherwise the main difference is a lot of new features and bugs that have been fixed. For more information on the changes to the interface, please see the release notes for version 3.

The migration is scheduled to take place some time during the first half of January 2018.


MetAlerts: 2018-03-08

Support for search by county number (for warnings issued after 2018-03-15)

Sigmets: 2018-02-22

No longer generates error when no SIGMETS have been issued

Textlocation: removal of gale and obsforecast, 2017-12-14

From February 2018 all gale and obs forecasts will only be delivered via metalerts. This means those elements will no longer be present in the textlocation XML, instead they must be fetched as CAP from the metalerts product on the API.

Textforecast: gale and obs soon to be discontinued, 2017-12-13

The gale and obs warnings are now available in CAP format from the metalerts section of the API, and will shortly be discontinued in textforecast. The following values will then no longer be allowed in the forecast parameter and will result in a 400 Bad Request:

  • gale
  • gale_id
  • obs
  • obs_va
  • obs_vn
  • obs_vv
Upperwindweather: Discontinued products, 2017-12-11

The following products are no longer being produced, but may be added again in the future:

pwad, pwae, pwcd, pwce, pwrd, pwre, pwbd, pwbe, pwdd, pwde

The API now also ignores files older than 2 days, to avoid serving obsolete data.

Nowcast: 2017-09-11
