Getting Temperature data for a single date (or a range of dates)

This function will return a (fairly large) data frame. If you are going to be using this data for future analysis, you can store the results in a CSV file by setting opt_write_to_file to be TRUE

Usage
getTemperatureForDate(station_id, start_date, end_date = NULL,
  station_type = "airportCode", daily_min = FALSE, daily_max = FALSE,
  opt_write_to_file = FALSE)
Arguments
station_id

is a valid station code or a valid Weather Station ID (example: "BUF", "ORD", "VABB" for Mumbai). Valid Weather Station "id" values: "KFLMIAMI75" or "IMOSCOWO2" You can look up weather station IDs at wunderground.com

start_date

is a valid string representing a date in the past (YYYY-MM-DD, all numeric)

end_date

(optional) If an interval is to be specified, end_date is a a valid string representing a date in the past (YYYY-MM-DD, all numeric) and greater than start_date

station_type

= "airportCode" (4-letter airport code) or "ID" (Wx call Sign)

daily_min

A boolean indicating if only the Minimum Temperatures are desired

daily_max

A boolean indicating if only the Maximum Temperatures are desired

opt_write_to_file

If TRUE, the resulting dataframe will be stored in a CSV file. Default is FALSE

Details

For each day in the date range, this function fetches Temperature Data. It will fetch all the available values, which is typically multiple rows for each day, with a time stamp. This function is a light wrapper for getWeatherForDate.

Value

A data frame with each row containing:

  • Date and Time stamp (for each date specified)

  • Temperature values
