Examples

Access to the services is done with the get_meteo_from function, providing the name of the service and the options. Each service has a dedicated options function to guide through the specifics of each service:

library(meteospain)

mg_options <- meteogalicia_options(resolution = 'current_day')
get_meteo_from('meteogalicia', mg_options)
