Complete Data Retrieval, Low Verbosity Data Retrieval

Using the parameters 'lat', 'lon' and 'layer' together will retrieve weather data that is '|' section delimited, '~' segment delimited and '*' element delimited. The values for the 'lat' and 'lon' parameters can be found here: http://developer.mapquest.com/web/tools/lat-long-finder.

'layer=low' will retrieve the forecasted weather data segments for all of the periods contained in the forecast.
