General Information

AccuWeather's Alerts API provides severe weather warnings from official government meteorological agencies and leading global weather alert providers worldwide.

  • Alerts are available in more than 200 languages and dialects.
  • Alert searches require a location key. Please use the Location API 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.
  • The AccuWeather API provides subscribers access to location based weather data via a simple RESTful web interface.
