About

WeatherSpark is a new type of weather website, with interactive weather graphs that allow you to pan and zoom through the entire history of any weather station on earth.

Get multiple forecasts for the current location, overlaid on records and averages to put it all in context.

Beta

We're still in beta, so please pardon any rough edges on the site or glitches in the data - weather stations sometimes report bogus values, and we're working to sort those out.

We currently have more than 4,000 weather stations, but are working to add more.It's primarily METAR right now, but we want to add Mesonet/PWS as well.

Data Credits

The data that powers WeatherSpark comes from several sources:

  • Weather.gov: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration serves up both historical data for the world and forecasts for the United States.
  • met.no: The Norwegian Meteorological Institute provides weather forecasts for the world.
  • World Weather Online: A for-fee weather forecasting service that offers a web API.

Born and raised in Sweden, Jacob has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2001. He holds a Master's in Electrical Engineering and Applied Physics from Linkoping Insitute of Technology, one year of which was spent on a scholarship at Stanford University.

Jacob worked as a software engineer at Rosum Inc (now defunct), a geolocation startup in 2001/2002, then moved on to Trimble Navigation, first as a software engineer and subsequently software manager. After four and half years there he teamed up with James Diebel and started building websites like this one.

We're based in the Bay Area, California.
