Forecast Precipitation

Jerrick Fong Dec 01, 2018 04:11AM GMT

I am trying to get the percent chance of rain for the day. The documentation for 5 day forecast shows volume of rain is the only value obtainable but the XML example shows a percentage. Is there was any way to get (and later calculate) the chance of raining on a certain day preferably in json?

Hello Jerrick,

Thank you for request.

Seems like you talk about this string:
<precipitation value="99%" unit="3h" type="rain"/>

Unfortunately, there is a typo. This value is not percent, but millimeters. We will fix it.

Now we have no percent chance in forecast
