Davis Instruments, the manufacturer of our on-range weather station, is migrating to a new version of its application programmer interface (API).
On or about September 28, 2018, we migrated our Davis WeatherLink account to the new version, and data from stations using the new version are no longer accessible using the old versions of Davis pages. (About 2/3 of all stations are now on the new version.)
For current range weather conditions, instead of using < http://www.weatherlink.com/user/largc/ >, please use < https://www.weatherlink.com/embeddablePage/show/c26756318df147f1b02a8db6f063e8e8/wide >.

WeatherLink API Update
As our move to WeatherLink 2.0 proceeds, we are approaching an important update that will affect anyone using the www.weatherlink.com/xml.php. This may affect you if you use our API (Application Programming Interface) to:
- Display data on a personal or community web page.
- Share data with a 3rd party service that is dependent on the API.
- Access your weather data programmatically from our servers.
The www.weatherlink.com/xml.php API will not function properly once an account has moved to WeatherLink 2.0. The api.weatherlink.com/v1, available in JSON and XML formats, should be used instead. Api.weatherlink.com works for WeatherLink 1.0 and 2.0 and can be used immediately, but it requires the use of a unique API token.
To generate a unique API token, perform the following steps. You can also watch the Generate API Token video
- Log in to WeatherLink 2.0 using existing WeatherLink user credentials.
- Access the account information in the right sidebar, under the username and account picture.
- On the account information page, click Generate API Token.
- Fill in the required fields and click the Generate button.
- The unique API token will display in the API Token field.
These important changes will help us make continual improvements to the API so that you can access your personal weather station data or share it with 3rd party services faster and with maximum reliability.
If you are aware of any person or 3rd party that may use www.weatherlink.com/xml.php, please help us spread the news of the upcoming changes.
