metoffice weather platform uses the Met Office’s DataPoint API for weather data.
Adding Met Office to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by taking the following steps:

A number of weather entities are created for each entry created in the configuration by location: one weather entity with a summary of the 3-hourly forecasts and twelve sensor entities for individual reporting on each of the individual measurements. The time supplied for each forecast is the start time for the forecast.
