Archived Pilot Reports (PIREPs)

The IEM attempts to process a feed of Pilot Reports (PIREPs). This processing is done via the PyIEM Library. Sadly, there is not strict coherence to a format specification and so a number of reports are simply unparsable. This archive should not be considered 'complete'.

Due to filesize and speed, you can only request up to 120 days of data at a time!
