I am trying to build an energy forecaster for a city in the UK and need a source of fine grain (hourly) weather data to help train my model.
The dataset extends back for the last 12 months, so I would need the weather to extend this far back at least. If it also had an API for real-time updates, that would be ace.
The closest that I could find so far was the MIDAS Open from the Met Office, but that stopped in 2020. All other sources of historical data only seemed to show daily values, not hourly.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
