API

RainViewer gets the radar information from the radar data sources available on the Internet, and we made all our information available for everyone to use without any limitations. We can serve many data but our we have limited resources. If you want to share weather radar map to your 100 billion customers directly from our servers, please, try to cache most of the information on your side :)
