Get some weather for your zip codes.


Meteorologist is a wrapper around NOAA's weather forecasts. Since NOAA response is crappy XML, this library wrapper gives you nice pretty JSON on the weather forecasts that NOAA provides. And because it's really slow, it introduces a way to cache forecasts so the response is snappy.

You should clone this repository and run the following.

npm install
node server.js

You can then request on http://localhost:4000 with the endpoints /gps/:lat/:lng and /zip/:zipcode.

You can also use this as a module, note that it is built asynchronously, you'll need to npm install meteorologist.

var meteorologist = require('meteorologist');
meteorologist.forecast(:zipcode, function(res) // any 5 digit US zipcode
