Weather Forecast 0% open


What data is expected?

3-day forecasts of temperature, precipitation and wind. Forecasts have to be provided for several regions in the country. Short-term weather forecasts are relevant for the general public to plan activities, while also being reliable. See our methodology section for more information.

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

How open is the data?

The initial submission was rejected because the homepage of Bhutan's Department of Hydro Met Services (see: only provides temperature forecasts (as icons). There is a "download" button on the homepage. It leads to a data request form which needs to be sent via fax or post. Data is therefore not accessible without need to request data. It could not be verified which data are accessible by government. Therefore the data does not qualify for review. Thank you for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
