Following data is provided online: Maximum Temp.(°C), Minimum Temp.(°C), 24 hrs Rainfall(mm), Air Temperature, Relative Humidity, Sunrise, Sunset. The data cannot be downloaded at once. A client (user) needs to login before he/she can download the pdf formatted dataset. Yet there is no any sign up option for general users.

The submission was not accepted because the website of the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology (http://www.mfd.gov.np/) only publishes forecast data for the current day online. There is a data request form available at: http://dhm.gov.np/uploads/forms/952477067Meteorological%20data%20request%20Form.pdf Users need to indicate their use purpose. The "time period" field in the form suggests that only observational, historical data can be requested at: http://dhm.gov.np/uploads/forms/952477067Meteorological%20data%20request%20Form.pdf Thank you, Manish Marahatta, for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
