So here's some example code downloading a single sounding for a particular site
(OUN in this case) for one time (01.01.2016):
from datetime import datetime
from siphon.simplewebservice.wyoming import WyomingUpperAir
station = 'OUN'
dt = datetime(2016, 1, 1, 12)
df = WyomingUpperAir.request_data(dt, station)
print(df['pressure'], df['temperature'], df['dewpoint'], df['pw'])
This gets pressure, temperature, dewpoint (that's what's provided for a
humidity measurement), and precipitable water (pw). If you need it for that
many dates, you'll need to make many individual requests. If you go to their
You can request multiple days for a single site.
