The Civil Aviation Authority has a dedicated website for the weather in Qatar. The website is up to date, but it only publishes to the public 3 days of data, therefore the question on availability to the public has been answered as "No" in accordance with the dataset requirements for this category.

Reviewer comments

This submission is accepted as the dataset contains 3 days of forecast data for temperature, wind, and precipitation. I altered the original submission only by changing the 'is the data available online' answer from no to yes and providing the url that I found by investigating the claims in the comment.
