Weather Forecast 80% open

Isle of Man

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 submission is correct. The data can be downloaded as PDF but it would afford human intervention first to extract the relevant information. A footer at the bottom of the page states that the data is openly licensed: the license allows to "copy, publish, distribute and transmit the Information; adapt the Information; exploit the Information commercially and non-commercially". Thank you, Graeme Jones, for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
