You can use Domo's NOAA Weather connector to retrieve a weather forecast or current observations for a specified latitude and longitude from the public National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) data.
You create an NOAA Weather DataSet in the Data Center.
The NOAA Weather connector is a "Cloud App" connector, meaning it retrieves data stored in the cloud. In the Data Center, you can access the connector page for this and other Cloud App connectors by clicking Cloud App in the toolbar at the top of the window.
This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the NOAA Weather connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.
Creating an NOAA Weather DataSet
There are two types of reports to choose from:
The Forecast report returns future forecast weather data at either a daily or hourly period.
The Current Observations report returns 1 row of the last recorded values for a specific weather station.
Latitude and Longitude
Provide the latitude and longitude for the coordinates you would like to return data for.
You must select a weather station when choosing the current observations report. The weather station drop-down list is populated with the closest stations to the latitude and longitude provided.
Then, schedule updates for your new DataSet in the Scheduling pane. For information about the remaining sections of the connector interface, including how to configure scheduling, retry, and update options, see Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.
