There are several possibilities to specify the desired station_id. Either coordinates or specific WMO, METAR, AMDA or CH station codes can be used. Additionally, it is possible to query the station data by using a unique ID generated by Meteomatics. If you choose coordinates, the data from the nearest station is retrieved.
wmo_066810 is St. Gallen
metar_LSZH is Zurich Airport
amda_P100 is Kahl/Main
mch_LUG is Lugano
MM unique ID
1463524709 is Zurich Airport
It is possible to get a list of available weather stations from which you can select the desired station identifiers. Several conditions can be specified in order to filter the list of stations. The output is a sorted list of stations matching the specified conditions. The output format is CSV.
Coordinates: location=<lat>,<lon>, or bounding box location=<lat_max>,<lon_min>_<lat_min>,<lon_max>
Model Output Statistics (MOS) is a statistical procedure in modern weather forecasting that uses multiple linear regression where predictants, such as air temperature and wind speed, are statistically linked to predictors. These predictors are forecasts from numerical weather prediction models and recent station observations. The MOS forecasts are updated each 30 minutes and have a lead time of 15 days with a temporal resolution of 1 hour.
In order to query MOS forecast data, the source has to be set to mm-mos.
The station_id can be specified in the same way as for observational data (Station identifiers).
Find MOS Station
It is possible to get a list of available weather stations for which MOS forecasts are computed. Additional conditions can be specified in the same way as for observational data (Conditions). The output format is CSV.
The weather parameters for which a MOS forecast can be queried, depends on the parameters that are recorded at the desired weather station. For a general overview of available MOS weather parameters, please see: available MOS parameters
