Query multiple locations in one call

  • Updated 1 year ago
I see that there have been many requests for the ability to get data for multiple locations in a single call, and I see answers that suggest you're considering adding this.  The most recent post I see on the subject is 2 years old; has there been any change since then?  Is there now a way to query multiple locations at a time?

It is not available on the Wunderground API yet. It will be added in the future, but it will be prioritized based on the number of requests coming in for a feature.

It looks like there have been comments in this forum asking about this for 4 or 5 years.  From this, should I assume that it's not likely to happen any time soon?  I'm not sure we'll be able to use you without it.

I absolutely second this request! Also, I don't think you should wait for further requests because 1) most devs who want it wouldn't request it anyway, they'd just move on, and 2) it would be VERY VALUABLE in allowing us to develop new types of weather applications that aren't limited to focusing on a single location at a time i.e. it would really open up all sorts of new use cases. For example, just a simple weather app which has a top level list of favorite locations, and showing say today's forecast temps and latest observed temp for each one WITHOUT breaking the api usage budgets, would make for a great app. ALSO given that many other weather APIs also don't allow multiple location queries at once, when you add this you will get a big competitive advantage over them, for devs like me who want to do something a little bit more sophisticated than your typical bland single location focused weather app.

Are there any updates on this? Requesting multiple locations in a single api call has been requested quite a few times and would be added to the api's functionality.

This seems like a popular, and from my standpoint, urgent request.

Despite Ravi's comment at top, looks like this will never happen :-(  https://apicommunity.wunderground.com/weatherapi/topics/please-allow-us-to-hit-multiple-stations-in-...
