The data request form is broken. Data on 5, 7 and 30 day forecast is available, in PDF format. Journals and reports are outdated.

The submission was altered because the Kenya Meteorological Department does not provide wind forecasts (see for instance here: http://www.meteo.go.ke/pdf/five-day.pdf) Precipitation amount is described verbally ("Showers and thunderstorms over few places"). There is a data request form, but at the time of review it was still broken. It is available here: http://www.meteo.go.ke/index.php?q=datarequest Thank you, Serah Rono, for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
