PyMETAR

PyMETAR is a python library and companion command-line utility to fetch and parse weather reports provided by weather stations, primarily those located at airports. This data is provided via an API maintained by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in a standardized format. Users provide the tool with a four-letter station code and receive weather data in a structured format. The included `pymet2.py` example demonstrates how to use all the features of the library. The `pymetar` utility provides a quick way to access weather data from a shell prompt or script. PyMETAR requires Python version 3 and can be installed via Python's `pip` package manager.
