The SITA Weather API is a REST based service which provides current and forecast weather data for locations around the world. The API consumer can query current conditions and either 5-day or 7-day forecast for airports around the world using just the airport IATA\ICAO code. The APIs can return current conditions, forecasted conditions or both.
The API enables you to:
- Request the current weather information for a single location.
- Request the weather forecast information for a single location for either 5 or 7 days duration depending on the request parameter.
- Request to receive a combination of current and forecast for a single location.
- The APIs also include icons for each weather description enabling you to create a graphical display of the weather information and forecasts within your apps.
The refresh period for current conditions is more frequent than that for forecast conditions. Current conditions are updated every 30 minutes while the forecast is updated 4 times per day, at approximately 0:15, 6:15, 12:15, and 18:15 US Eastern Time.
