Here's the next step in my gradual development of an API for easy access to historical weather data.

The next "small move" will most likely be combining this data with other data. What I'd really like to see is this data combined with datasets of the impact of weather events such as droughts, floods, landslides and wild fires. That might just happen at #RHOK on the 3rd December 2011 - not long now.
