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?

The submission was changed because it referred to an institute affiliated with the University of Warsaw. The main body to provide meteorological data is the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management. Forecast data is available in HTML on a website. No download is provided for forecast data. Forecast data is ot downloadable at once (only historical data as it seems). This historical data can be downloaded per station. The data is stored in many different places on the website and it is hard to find all required elements. However, one webpage provides a link list to all data (once this is found, the navigation is easier). The terms of use seem to comply mostly with the OpenDefinition (see here: Users need to send an application if their intended use cases deviate from the original use cases of the data. This limits the modifiability of the data. Therefore the data is assessed to be not fully openly licensed. Thank you, Krzysztof Madejski, for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
