I am building a garden calendar app, that uses the average temperature for each month to create a calendar. Are there websites that allow me to easily download this data in json format?

  • $\begingroup$ My first thought that comes to mind is Nasa. I don't think it provides data in a Json format, or even specific data that you are referring to, but it is definitely worth checking out. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Check out ncdc.noaa.gov/cdo-web/datasets and see if it has what you need. $\endgroup$

Out here in the Western U.S. the Western Regional Climate Center offers such historical data for download. If I recall, their downloads are in .csv format, not .json. However, converting data formats is relatively straightforward for GIS software, such as QGIS.

  • $\begingroup$ thank you. But i'm actually looking for a website that offers global data $\endgroup$

I don't know how to get it in JSON format, but you can probably write a simple webscraping script for Weather Underground. For example, if you want to make a calendar for your best friend in Greenland, you can use https://www.wunderground.com/history/monthly/gl/kangerlussuaq/BGSF. Or, in HTML terms, https://www.wunderground.com/history/monthly/<country>/<city>/<ICAO>/. Of course, I would recommend going to the Weather underground website and exploring a bit to avoid unexpected behavior.
