  • Wind speed
  • Wind direction
  • Precipitation Amount
  • Precipitation Probability
  • Forecast for current day and four following days

How open is the data?

The submission did not qualify for assessment, because no forecasts are available for wind speed and direction. The data is available at: The data is stored as a PNG file embedded in the HTML code. Single elements (precipitation icons, etc.) cannot be individually scraped. Extensive human effort would be required to transcribe the data manually. The data can only be used for private use: "© NIMH. All rights reserved. For personal use only! Any usage of data from Bulgarian Weather Server in public information services or for commercial purposes without explicit agreement IS PROHIBITED!" The original submission was done by Drenusha Myha. Thank you for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
