Today I was alerted to WeatherBug’s API contest receiving press in the Programmable Web blog. Some of the highlights include:

  • How the WeatherBug API provides access to over 8,000 weather tracking stations.
  • How developers can use the API to display live weather conditions, daily forecasts, United States camera images and severe weather alerts.
  • That the API is available in two flavors:  standard XML and pipe-delimited format.

Thus far the API contest has been a great success and I will be highlighting some of the entries soon. If you have still not entered the contest, you would be encouraged to do so today so you can have a shot at winning an Apple iPod Touch!
