AccuWeather Deploys API3 Airnode Bringing Weather Data Directly to Blockchain Applications
For the first time, decentralized applications will receive AccuWeather’s world-class weather data directly through Airnode’s first-party architecture
AccuWeather, the world’s most accurate and most used weather source, launched its AccuWeather API in collaboration with API3, a leading first-party blockchain oracle solution, providing a seamless Web3 wrapper that enables Web API providers to offer AccuWeather’s world-class weather data directly on-chain. The deal empowers AP13 to deliver the most accurate weather forecast and warning data to decentralized applications (dApps) to benefit users and community members.

By running its own oracle node, AccuWeather will further establish itself as a foundational data provider in the developing dApp space through direct interaction with decentralized developers and data consumers, demonstrating the value, impact and breadth of weather data across various platforms and applications. The technology’s first-party architecture also offers easily scalable solutions as AccuWeather looks to increase data production and delivery to users and communities.
AccuWeather’s partnership with API3 creates a new opportunity to control its own oracle node that serves data to end-users. The newly accessible direct-to-consumer connection is another significant step forward for AccuWeather as an industry-leading innovator and as it establishes its presence in Web3.
With API3’s Airnode, the AccuWeather API will seamlessly provide Web3 developers with its numerous weather-related endpoints. This data can be leveraged across a number of dApps serving user needs including:
For data consumers, the first-party oracle model offers improved user transparency; data is delivered directly from one reputable source versus an intermediary providing aggregated information from anonymous origins, and lower costs for data consumers due to fewer entities involved in the information exchange process (intermediary, additional API providers).
