IPMA is the entity responsible for weather monitoring.

10-day forecasts are available in the Forecast page, fulfilling all requirements of this category for weather forecasts.

However, there is no apparent reference to a comprehensive historical temperature dataset. There are monthly charts/maps available, but not daily data. I've inquired on their website to see if there's anything.

The license terms forbid commercial use.

Reviewer comments

The open license question was changed to 'no' based on the dataset not being available for commercial use.

Otherwise, the submission is accepted as is.
