How to Get Environment Canada Climate Station ID From Name

  1. Go to http://climate.weather.gc.ca/.
  2. In Step 1, select “Daily”.
  3. In Step 2, choose a year in which there could be some daily data.
  4. In Step 3, input the station name

  1. Hit the “Search” Button.
  2. If more than one station is given, select the station you want to use.
  3. Then you will be navigated to the daily data report page.

The address of this page would be in following format:

http://climate.weather.gc.ca/climateData/dailydata_e.html?timeframe=2&Prov=MAN%20&StationID=29886&dlyRange=2000-01-01|2013-12-11&Year=2013&Month=12&Day=11

A key named StationID will be found in this address. The value for this key is the station ID we need. In this case, the station ID is 29886.

  1. How can I find these StationIDs for all major Canadian cities. These are not WMO IDs for sure. This is very confusing as I can’t find StationIDs anywhere.
    Can you help me with these StationsIDs ??
    Thanks in advance 🙂
