The weather platforms gather meteorological information from web services and display the conditions and other details about the weather at the given location.

Building block integration

The weather integration cannot be directly used. You cannot create your own weather entities using this integration. This integration is a building block for other integrations to use, enabling them to create weather entities for you.

For a list of weather integrations, on the integrations page, select the weather category.
