The One Call API 3.0 offers access to a range of data through four endpoints:

1. Current weather conditions and forecasts:

  • Government weather alerts

2. Weather data available for any specific timestamp from a historical archive spanning over 45 years, alongside forecasts for the next 4 days.

3. Daily aggregation of weather data from a historical archive spanning over 45 years, along with forecasts extending 1.5 years ahead.

4. Weather overview with a human-readable weather summary for today and tomorrow's forecast, utilizing OpenWeather AI technologies.

Making the Switch

The transition to One Call API 3.0 is designed to be seamless. We've carefully mapped out the dataset comparison and matching parameters to ensure a smooth migration process.

For a detailed guide, refer to our How to start using One Call API 3.0 section. It provides a field-by-field comparison and highlights all necessary changes you should be aware of.

How to buy: One Call API 3.0 operates on a flexible subscription model. The first 1,000 API calls per day are free, and any additional calls are charged at a rate of 0.0012 GBP.

There are a couple of options to start this subscription:
