New feature in Bulk Downloading: Now you can get bulk files for the previous seven  days

Posted on 19 Mar 2020

We have added new functionality to Bulk Downloading. The main idea of this product is to allow you to regularly download batches of current weather and forecast data for more than 200,000 locations at once via a JSON file.

Until now, you could only access regularly updated Current and Forecast bulk files. Each time the weather data is updated, these are replaced by a file with fresh data, removing old data. This means there is the problem of how to recover the deleted data if your download of the new file has failed.

To help you with this, we have made it possible to download all bulk files with this data for the previous seven days.

If you have already started using Bulk Downloading, you can use this link:

http://bulk.openweathermap.org/archive/{NAME\_OF\_BULK\_FILE}?appid={YOUR\_API\_KEY}

where:

{NAME\_OF\_BULK\_FILE} is in the “File name” table column in the “ 7-day archives of bulk files” section

{YOUR\_API\_KEY} can be found on the “ API keys” page in your personal account.

If you have not used this product before, please read our detailed documentation, which will help you to get started.
