Switching between temperature units

Last Updated: Jan 26, 2017 02:45PM UTC

OpenWeatherMap website provides mesaurements in three units: Kelvins as a default, Fahrenheit and Celsius. Please follow this manual to receive the data in the units of your preference:
 

  1. In API:


    To get data in API for both current weather and forecast in Kelvins just simply do not indicate units parameter into your API call.
     

    To get data in API for both current weather and forecast in Fahrenheit just add units=imperial parameter into your API call like in this example:
     

    api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/weather?q=London&units=imperial

    To get data in API for both current weather and forecast in Celsius just add units=metric parameter into your API call like in this example:

    api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/weather?q=London&units=metric
