We are happy to announce that students and educators can now use our Medium plan for historical weather collection and Developer’s plan for current weather and forecasts for 6 months, absolutely free. We have previously granted access to weather data for researchers studying COVID-19, which resulted in a fruitful collaboration. In OpenWeather, we are dedicated to fostering the interest in data-science and climatology, and this exclusive student offer is purposed to facilitate the access to weather data.
