Group 2xx Weather Condition Codes

Jordan Sep 11, 2017 07:29AM MSK

Do group 2xx weather codes ever show up under the 5 day/3 hour forecast API calls? I have never seen any conditions show up for weather under those calls in the 2xx category. If a thunderstorm is going on in the area, the weather condition call is always in group 5xx or 3xx.

I've also only see a 2xx show up once on a current weather data and daily forecast API call. This seems like a big problem to me when a thunderstorm is going on (that is either reported by most major weather services or viewable with my own eyes) and it is just reported as heavy intensity rain. I want my users to know when lightning is going to be a hazard.

Is this intended or not? Thanks.

Thanks fof the request.

We mostly focus on the basic weather conditions.

However, the info abouit thunderstorms is also reported. There are cases when this data is not populated because the weather stations do not measure it.

Could you please specify some real cases?
