Where can I get real time data for wind direction and weather forecast?

  • Hi, do you need some specific location? Specific format?

  • I don`t have any specific location in mind.. in fact anything will do for now. And format needs to be something major data mining tools can handle.

  • Ok cool, I am working on releasing french (and worldwide after that) weather forecast 0-36h as a JSON API. For the moment most of the data available are in Grib/Grib2 format which is quite unusual to use. The data will be updated 4times per day. I'll post everything below as soon as it's live.

You can get wind speed & direction from METAR files, which every open airport should be publishing.

I don't know if forecasts are as standardized. I'm used to looking at NOAA's National Weather Service, but there might be better services for non-U.S. locations.
