Usage

Two nodes that get the weather report and forecast from OpenWeatherMap.

Note: An API key is required to use these nodes. To obtain an API key go to OpenWeatherMap.

Input Node

Fetches the current weather or 5 day forecast at a location specified by city and country or latitude and longitude every 10 minutes - and outputs a msg if something has changed.

Query node

Accepts an input to trigger fetching the current weather either from a specified city and country or latitude and longitude or passed in on

msg.location.city and msg.location.country
    or
msg.location.lat and msg.location.lon

Results

Current conditions will return

  • description - a brief verbal description of the current weather for human reading.
  • weather - a very short description of the current weather.
  • tempc - the current ground temperature at that location in Celsius.
  • tempk - the current ground temperature at that location in Kelvin.
  • humidity - the current relative humidity at the location in percent.
  • windspeed - the current wind speed at the location in metres per second.
  • winddirection - the current wind direction at the location in meteorological degrees.
  • location - the name of the location from which the data was sourced.

5 day Forecast will return a 5 part array, each with

  • dt - epoch timestamp
  • pressure - in hPa
  • hunidity - in %
  • speed - wind speed in metres per second
  • deg - wind direction in degrees
  • clouds - cloudiness in %
  • temp - an object with various temperatures in degC,
    • day, min, max, night, eve, morn
  • weather - an object with some misc. data,
    • description, icon, main, id

The node also sets the following properties of msg.location.

  • lat - the latitude of the location from which the data was sourced.
  • lon - the longitude of the location from which the data was sourced.
  • city - the city from which the data was sourced.
  • country - the country from which the data was sourced.

Finally, the node sets:

  • msg.time - the time at which the weather data was received by OpenWeatherMap.
  • msg.data - the full JSON returned by the API. This is VERY rich...
