WU API Almanac JSON Script, It's already here!
« on: January 22, 2018, 06:32:24 PM »
Well, heck. You can't beat WxForum and good ol' Saratoga Ken!

I had the VWS almanac data of highs/lows/averages on my site for years. As y'all might know, that connection is broken, so I took it off. After yet another query about it today, I went a'searching WU for their API info. In short, here's what I need.

http://api.wunderground.com/api/MyAPIkey/almanac/q/CA/San_Luis_Obispo.json

which returns

C   "-1"

Now I need to parse it. Did a search here and found this thread from 2012...

www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=15427

So, now, to keep within the 20 calls /day developer limit, I need to mash that up into something I can call from a cron job just after midnight and write to a table I can display.

Thanks, Ken, and the OP, CNYWeather!

It's a shame NWS doesn't stand that same test of time...  :roll:
