The submission did not qualify for assessment, because no forecasts are available for wind speed and direction.
The data is available at: https://weather.bg/0index.php?koiFail=RM2bulg1&lng=1. 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:
