How can I get the current condition only from METAR weather stations. Not from amateur stations, which are often not well calibrated ?

We also have a pws switch that you can set to 0, and you'll get the closest NWS / airport weather station.

Normally this call would find the nearest PWS in Lafayette, CA:

But adding the pws switch will force it to the airport station:
