downloadAEMEThistorical downloads data for the specified AEMET stations and dates. Data are availables for dates up to 4 days before current date. If
export = FALSE, function
downloadAEMEThistorical returns a
SpatialPointsMeteorology-class object with the downloaded meteorology for each station (point). Otherwise the function writes on the disk at the location specified by
exportDir and solelely returns a
SpatialPointsDataFrame-class object containing the files metadata.
downloadAEMETcurrentday downloads recent weather (the last 24h) from all currently available stations and returns data frame if
daily = FALSE or a
SpatialPointsDataFrame-class object with observations aggregated at the daily scale if else.
Since ver. 1.0.1, weather data download functions included in
meteoland make internal calls to functions in package
meteospain. For an enhanced flexibility, users are recommended to call functions in
meteospain themselves, and then to use function
reshapemeteospain to generate data suitable for
