Weather Forecast 50% 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 data is available to download only as paid service.

The original submission referred to weather forecast maps, freely available online without the need to register. I corrected the submission and referred it to downloadable data that is already available in machine-readable and open formats. This data is not available online without signing up for a paid service. There was no note of terms of use. It could not be verified whether these are compliant with the OpenDefinition. Therefore it was stated that the data is not openly licensed. The paid service provides three day forecasts for wind, precipitation and temperatures. Downloadable at: Thank you, Toms Ceļmillers, for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
