Introducing the Cloudcast API on RapidAPI

Hello everyone!

We're thrilled to introduce the Cloudcast API, a new addition to the API catalog hosted on RapidAPI.

The Cloudcast API is your one-stop solution for a wide range of weather data, which includes current weather conditions, hourly forecasts, daily forecasts, and much more. This API relies on leading weather data providers to deliver top-notch, precise results.

In this blog post, we'll demonstrate how to kick-start your journey with the Cloudcast API on RapidAPI, and illustrate some of its potential use cases.

Getting Started with Cloudcast API on RapidAPI

To begin with, if you haven't already, sign up for an account on RapidAPI. After signing up, navigate to the Cloudcast API page on RapidAPI.

To start utilizing the Cloudcast API, you'll need to subscribe to a plan. The API offers a variety of plans, including a free tier with a limited number of requests per month, and multiple paid tiers with higher limits and added features.

Upon subscribing to a plan, you'll be able to make requests to the API directly from the RapidAPI interface. You'll also receive a unique API key to authenticate your requests.

Example Use Cases

Here are a few examples of what you can accomplish with the Cloudcast API:

  • Current Weather Data: Fetch current weather conditions for any location worldwide, including temperature, humidity, wind speed, and more.

  • Hourly Forecasts: Obtain detailed hourly forecasts for up to 48 hours ahead, useful for planning outdoor activities or events.

  • Daily Forecasts: Get daily weather forecasts for up to a week in advance, helping you plan for the week ahead.

Sample Code

Here's a straightforward example of making a request to the Cloudcast API using Node.js and the axios library:

const axios = require('axios');

const options = {
  method: 'GET',
  url: '',
  headers: {
    'X-RapidAPI-Key': 'your-api-key',
    'X-RapidAPI-Host': ''

try {
    const response = await axios.request(options);
} catch (error) {

Don't forget to replace 'YOUR_RAPIDAPI_KEY' with your actual RapidAPI key.

This code snippet will display the current weather conditions for San Francisco, CA.


The Cloudcast API is a treasure trove of weather data, making it an excellent choice for any project or application in need of reliable weather information. We hope this blog post provided a clear overview of the API and demonstrated how to start using it on RapidAPI.
