A package to access meteorological data from Environment Canada

Project description

Environment Canada (env_canada)

This package provides access meteorological data published by Environment Canada.

Weather

ECData provides current conditions and forecast. It automatically determines which weather station to use based on latitude/longitude provided. It is also possible to specify a specific station code of the form AB/s0000123 based on those listed in this CSV file. For example:

from env_canada import ECData

ec_en = ECData(coordinates=(lat, long))
ec_fr = ECData(station_id='ON/s0000430', language='french')

# current conditions
ec_en.conditions

# daily forecasts
ec_en.daily_forecasts

# hourly forecasts
ec_en.hourly_forecasts

# alerts
ec_en.alerts

# AQHI air quality
ec_en.aqhi

# Update 
ec_en.update()

Radar

ECRadar provides Environment Canada meteorological radar imagery.

from env_canada import ECRadar

radar_coords = ECRadar(coordinates=(lat, long))
radar_station = ECRadar(station_id='XFT')

# Conditions Available
radar_coords.get_loop()
radar_station.get_latest_frame()
