NWS Marine Coastal forecasts in plain text
« on: August 02, 2018, 03:21:11 PM »
This URL https://forecast-v3.weather.gov/products/locations/GYX/CWF/1?format=text gives a series of local zone forecasts along the Maine coast. I have been trying to figure out how to get only a single one of those local zone in that same text format.

For example, is there a format to get only the ANZ153 section or do I just need to write some kind of regex parser to accomplish that?

Is this similar to what you are looking for?

I have a series of marine weather pages on my site that use this source - with the relevant zones for Great Lakes that is  :grin:

Don't know if this will help but the NWS also has point marine forecasts.
Very useful if you are going to be in a specific area.

It is indeed, mostly, though that is still an HTML page. I was looking for a way to get plain text only, using curl or a similar tool.

Are you looking to have it on a web page within your site?  Similar to this?

If so, I can share the code I use for this.

Edit:  There is also a text only within a web page.
