A package to access meteorological data from Environment Canada

Project description

Environment Canada (env_canada)

This package provides access to various data sources published by Environment and Climate Change Canada.

Weather Observations and Forecasts

ECWeather provides current conditions and forecasts. 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:

import asyncio

from env_canada import ECWeather

ec_en = ECWeather(coordinates=(50, -100))
ec_fr = ECWeather(station_id='ON/s0000430', language='french')

asyncio.run(ec_en.update())

# current conditions
ec_en.conditions

# daily forecasts
ec_en.daily_forecasts

# hourly forecasts
ec_en.hourly_forecasts

# alerts
ec_en.alerts

Weather Radar

ECRadar provides Environment Canada meteorological radar imagery.

import asyncio

from env_canada import ECRadar

radar_coords = ECRadar(coordinates=(50, -100))

# Conditions Available
animated_gif = asyncio.run(radar_coords.get_loop())
latest_png = asyncio.run(radar_coords.get_latest_frame())

Air Quality Health Index (AQHI)

ECAirQuality provides Environment Canada air quality data.

import asyncio

from env_canada import ECAirQuality

aqhi_coords = ECAirQuality(coordinates=(50, -100))

asyncio.run(aqhi_coords.update())

# Data available
aqhi_coords.current
aqhi_coords.forecasts

Water Level and Flow

ECHydro provides Environment Canada hydrometric data.

import asyncio

from env_canada import ECHydro

hydro_coords = ECHydro(coordinates=(50, -100))

asyncio.run(hydro_coords.update())

# Data available
hydro_coords.measurements
