The initial submission was amended. It stated that temperature extremes, averages, and precipitation are available online. However, it was found that the Malawi Meterological Services provide 24h forecast for temperature extremes and cloud coverage/precipitation, wind speed and direction at http://www.metmalawi.com/weather/weather_24h.php as well as at http://www.metmalawi.com/weather/5day_forecast.php. The forecasts are split into regions. 5-day forecasts are not separated into different days, but the website gives trends how the weather will develop in areas. Since the forecast is not very exact, not split into different days, and does not contain precipitation amount (at the date of review), it was decided that the submission does not qualify for assessment. Thank you, Tricia Govindasamy, for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
