Structure of the product

Historical forecast data is available from 6 April 2017.

A 16-day forecast is a set of values for weather parameters for each of the 16 days ahead.
There are 4 model recalculation cycles available for each day. Each time when recalculation happens, the new forecast is generated (it updates values of weather parameters in the forecast).
Forecasts are updated at these times: 00:00 UTC, 06:00 UTC, 12:00 UTC, 18:00 UTC.

To see what weather parameters are included, please see here.
Historical Forecasts are available in CSV and JSON.

A 16-day forecast is a set of values for weather parameters that are available in 3-hour steps for 16 days ahead.

Thus, each day will have the following structure:

00:00 UTC  {forecast weather data for 1st day - 16th day}
06:00 UTC {forecast weather data for 1st day - 16th day}
12:00 UTC {forecast weather data for 1st day - 16th day}
18:00 UTC {forecast weather data for 1st day - 16th day}

Please be aware that older historical forecasts will have different time steps.
Please see more below:

From 6 April 2017 to 15 June 2019, forecasted data in each recalculation cycle was available with the following steps:
{1st day - 10th day with 3-hour steps, 11th day - 16th day with 12-hour steps}

On 15th of June 2019 we have upgraded the service and forecast step became 3-hour for the whole period of the forecast.
{1st day - 16th day with 3-hour steps}

Sample data

There are two formats of files History Forecast bulk can be provided in. Please find the examples below:
