Weather Forecast 45% 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?

Historical data for precipitation amount, temperature extremes and wind speed can be found at: This interface allows to retrieve weather observations for each single measurement station (need to be requested individually). The data is available as XLS, and it seems that the original submission wrongly referred to this data. Forecasts for current day and following two days are available at: as well as under The forecasts are all presented as javascript features embedded on the website, or are published as PDF. They are not machine-readable. Also it could not be verified wether the data is in public domain or not. An open license is missing, and a copyright notice states that all rights reserved to INAMEH. Therefore the reviewer changed the submission to "No open license/no public domain".
