Upperwindweather - Upperlevel wind and weather charts
Chart for upper wind and weather (aviation weather) issued by met.no and UK MetOffice.
A list of available data may be retrieved using the 'available' action. The name, utc and level parameters can be specified to reduce the size of the list.
To check if any files that should be available are missing,
Only charts issued by met.no are public available on api.met.no. The only parameter available on api.met.no is sigkart
pw[ad|ae|bd|be|cd|ce|dd|de|rd|re], pp[va|ve|vg|vi|vj|vk|vm|vo], pg[ae|ce|de|re|se], qwme, qwmg, sigkart, sig_wx
Only sigkart is freely available.
Hour when valid, normally 00|06|12|18 (not all available for every product)
Levels are not available for pp.
Date when valid
Note: The valid date is not an exact science, but in some parts guesswork based on file dates and log scanning. It should work in the majority of cases, but may fail when transfers have been delayed.
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.
Fixed bug where files could not be served on subsequent requests
Now using time when valid in date/utc params, not time when produced
