Historical data for precipitation amount, temperature extremes and wind speed can be found at: This interface allows to retrieve weather observations for each single measurement station (need to be requested individually). The data is available as XLS, and it seems that the original submission wrongly referred to this data. Forecasts for current day and following two days are available at: as well as under The forecasts are all presented as javascript features embedded on the website, or are published as PDF. They are not machine-readable. Also it could not be verified wether the data is in public domain or not. An open license is missing, and a copyright notice states that all rights reserved to INAMEH. Therefore the reviewer changed the submission to "No open license/no public domain".
