Data is only accessible through a web form piece by piece. The files are split per hour. Automating a collection and assembling of all files is quite complex. Therefore the data is not considered to be downloadable at once. The data is available in GRIB2 format. While open, the GRIB format is not easily accessible, trying and just map temperatures for the next day from this data requires some experience.
