Describe response status codes and error handling.

Response Status Codes:

200 OK: This status code signifies a successful request. It means the request was processed correctly, and the API is returning the expected weather data.

400 Bad Request: A 400 status code indicates that the request is malformed or missing required parameters. Carefully review the request payload to resolve this issue.

401 Unauthorized: If you receive a 401 status code, it means your request lacks proper authentication credentials. Ensure you have provided valid API keys.

403 Forbidden: This status code suggests that you do not have the necessary permissions to access the requested resource. Check your API permissions and access levels.

404 Not Found: When you encounter a 404 status code, it means the API couldn't find the specified resource. Double-check your endpoint and parameters.

500 Internal Server Error: This code indicates an issue on the server's side. It's advisable to wait for the server to resolve the problem and try the request again later.

Error Handling:

Effective error handling is essential to provide a seamless user experience in your  Weather API-powered application. Here are some best practices for error handling:

Handle errors gracefully: When your application encounters an error, provide meaningful error messages to the user. This can include user-friendly explanations of what went wrong.

Log errors: Keep a detailed log of errors on the server for debugging purposes. This can help you identify and address recurring issues.

Implement retry mechanisms: For certain transient errors, consider implementing automatic retry mechanisms to reduce the impact of temporary service disruptions.

Monitor error rates: Continuously monitor the error rates to identify patterns and proactively address potential issues in your application.

Here are some best practices for the Ambee Weather API

Here are some key tips for making the most of your Weather API while minimizing costs:

Review Weather API Documentation:
The foundation of efficient API usage begins with understanding the Weather API's documentation. Familiarize yourself with the available endpoints, parameters, and data formats. A well-documented API can save you time and resources.

Select the Right Plan:
Weather APIs often offer different pricing tiers. Choose a plan that aligns with your specific needs. For smaller projects, a free or low-cost plan may suffice, while larger-scale applications may benefit from a premium plan with more generous usage limits.

Cache Data:
Implement data caching to store frequently accessed weather data. This reduces the number of requests to the API, saving both time and money.

Batch Requests:
Instead of making individual requests for each location or data point, batch your requests when possible. This minimizes the overhead associated with multiple API calls.

Use Webhooks and Subscriptions:
Some Weather APIs offer webhooks and subscription options, which allow you to receive updates when specific weather conditions change, rather than polling the API continuously. This can reduce the number of unnecessary requests.

Rate Limiting:
Be mindful of rate limits set by the Weather API provider. Respect these limits to avoid additional charges or temporary suspension of your API access.

Error Handling:
Implement robust error handling in your application to handle API errors gracefully. This can prevent excessive retries and save resources.
