General Information

  • The AccuWeather API provides subscribers access to location based weather data via a simple RESTful web interface.

  • Severe Weather Alerts are available worldwide from official Government Meteorological Agencies and leading global weather alert providers.    

  • Alert searches require a location key.  Please use the Location API in order to obtain the location key for your desired location. 
  • By default, the full text of the alert is not returned.  To see the full text, pass in "details=true" into the url string.  

  • If multiple alerts are active for the same location, the alerts will be returned in order of "Priority" within the API response, with the highest "Priority" alert being returned at the top of the response.
