Get a database of daily or hourly weather forecasts for a given municipality.

Usage

aemet_forecast_daily(x, verbose = FALSE, extract_metadata = FALSE)

aemet_forecast_hourly(x, verbose = FALSE, extract_metadata = FALSE)

Arguments

x

A vector of municipality codes to extract. For convenience, climaemet provides this data on the dataset aemet_munic (see municipio field) as of January 2020.

verbose

Logical TRUE/FALSE. Provides information about the flow of information between the client and server.

extract_metadata

Logical TRUE/FALSE. On TRUE the output is a tibble with the description of the fields. See also get_metadata_aemet().

Value

A nested tibble. Forecasted values can be extracted with aemet_forecast_tidy(). See also Details.

Details

Forecasts format provided by the AEMET API have a complex structure. Although climaemet returns a tibble, each forecasted value is provided as a nested tibble. aemet_forecast_tidy() helper function can unnest these values an provide a single unnested tibble for the requested variable.

If extract_metadata = TRUE a simple tibble describing the value of each field of the forecast is returned.

API Key

You need to set your API Key globally using aemet_api_key().

See also

aemet_munic for municipality codes.

Other aemet_api_data: aemet_daily_clim(), aemet_extremes_clim(), aemet_last_obs(), aemet_monthly, aemet_normal, aemet_stations()

Other forecasts: aemet_forecast_tidy()
