The data is available to download only as paid service.

The original submission referred to weather forecast maps, freely available online without the need to register. I corrected the submission and referred it to downloadable data that is already available in machine-readable and open formats. This data is not available online without signing up for a paid service. There was no note of terms of use. It could not be verified whether these are compliant with the OpenDefinition. Therefore it was stated that the data is not openly licensed. The paid service provides three day forecasts for wind, precipitation and temperatures.
