The original submission by Alesha Aris was amended. The dataset does not qualify for submission, because three-day forecasts are only available for precipitation amount (available at: http://hydromet.gov.gy/weather/forecast/). Other forecasts are available as PDF files in fair detail, see here: (http://hydromet.gov.gy/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Weather-Brief-February-20-2017.pdf). These forecasts are valid for the coming 24 hours, are irregularly updated, and do not exist for the date of assessment (February 24, 2017). Other links are broken (see here: http://hydromet.gov.gy/weather/wrf-24-hrs-tendency/). Data can be requested via: http://hydromet.gov.gy/data-request/. Thank you, Alesha Aris, for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
