In principle, Cameroon has an institution in charge of collecting, processing and publishing weather forecast data : The Direction of National Meteorology of the Ministry of Transport.

The website of this direction has not been updated since 2012 :

This is why I choose to indicate that, from this official source, weather forecast data in non-existant, even though our national broascasting TV (Cameroon Radio and Television - CRTV) has a daily weather service. It is easy to understand that these data come from other non-official sources.

The same CRTV annouced in February 2015 that the Government has signed a contract with a Moroccan consortium to offer weather forecast service in Cameroon.
