The meteorological observation (metObs) API service contains raw weather observation data, e.g. wind, temperature, and precipitation data, from DMI owned stations located in Denmark and Greenland. You can read more about meteorological observations and how they are attained under data sources.
If you want to download large quantities of historical meteorological observation data, we recommend that you use DMI’s bulk download service. The service lets you download .zip files, each containing historical data for a month going back to 1953. You can also download all historical data by selecting the file all.zip.
