Directorate General of Meteorology provides a lot of climate data to the public. The website has a section for providing simple weather details for specific cities in Oman and shows the temperature changes for the next three (not five) days for each city. ( http://www.met.gov.om/opencms/export/sites/default/dgman/en/weather-chart/oman-cities/index.html ) There is a section for historic data for the past 12 months. The website also has a more elaborate interactive map that allows the user to overlay different weather layers and playback the predicted changes for several future days. ( http://www.met.gov.om/opencms/export/sites/default/dgman/en/weather-chart/map-data/ ) The website is difficult to navigate and browsing by map is not intuitive and very slow. Also, the raw data does not appear to be available for download directly.
