The Xweather Weather API will limit the number of requests you can make based on your subscription. Your rate limit will be determined by your accesses per billing period. In addition to period based rate limiting, the Weather API will also enforce a minutely rate limit. Once you have surpassed your minutely or period based limit, the API will return a 429 status code (opens in a new tab).
Rate limits can be tracked with the response headers. The Weather API has custom headers for both minutely and period-based limits.
