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.
The submitter assessed the usability of the data as follows (3 - little to no effort needed, 1 - extensive effort needed): 1
|Downloadable at once||No||Data is only accessible through a web form piece by piece. Automating a collect and assemble of all files is quite complex|
|Available free of charge||Yes|
|In an open and machine-readable format||GRIB2|
|findable_steps||Checked last year's index, requirements are still fulfilled|
|Collected by government||Yes|
|usability||1||While open, the GRIB format is not easily accessible, trying and just map temperatures for the next day from this data requires some experience.|
|characteristics||Temperature extremes, Temperature average, Wind speed, Wind direction, Precipitation Amount, Forecast for current day and four following days|
|location||https://donneespubliques.meteofrance.fr/?fond=produit&i - ARPEGE Atmospheric global forecast model up to 102H, https://donneespubliques.meteofrance.fr/?fond=produit&i - AROME forecast model containing all required characteristics|
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.
