Hi Marcus,

 

This is perfect 🙂  !!! Thanks

Hi,

The refered dashboard is build on static/ downloaded information, I am trying to do a daily refresh using API.

 

Thanks

Would love to see how this can done dynamically. 

 

I explored using NOAA data couple years ago. I ran into the same issue.

 

When I found Weather Underground, I was able to pull the data down via a daily API call, then insert the data into my database, then pull that data into a dashboard. Was a great solution until Weather Underground was acquired by IBM and the data was no longer free. 

 

Have been looking for a replacement that is free but have not found one since.
