Find nearest weather data given coordinates

Find nearest weather data given coordinates

Postby Avneri » Thu Jul 09, 2009 8:57 pm
Is it possible to get the nearest weather station data when given lat/long coordinates?
i.e searching for "31 deg 45' N, 34 deg 37' E weather" retrieves historical temperatures for that point on that date. it also retrieves a panel named "Weather station information" but except local time and local sunlight. there is nothing there.
it would be nice to include the code of the nearest weather station and all the other meteorology data the station provides.

I agree, this is a good idea. At the moment W|A interprets a Weather station as a dictionary term. If the data from NOAA can be integrated where Station information is included with weather, that would be cool.

Seems like the weather stations (at least some of them) are also treated as part of a town or city. Perhaps it could simply locate the nearest weather station by city/town.
