How can we get latitude and longitude for official (not necessarily personal) weather stations?

It looks like geolookup gives the lat, lon for a city, but no locations for the weather stations themselves, only their distances from the city.

I understand why revealing the exact location of a personal weather station may violate someone's privacy, but what about non-personal, publicly known official stations?

Thanks,
John

When you use the /geolookup/ you get the main location data, plus the nearby airports and personal weather stations. For each weather station it says:

"neighborhood":"North Mission (Valencia",
"city":"San Francisco",
"state":"CA",

So you get the neighborhood and city. We don't give the addresses of the stations, but the lat/lon is exact. What information do you think is missing? Or, what lookup did you do, so I can look at the same thing to understand?
