Data Location



Weather forecast for the next 5 days is only available in non-machine-readable websites, both by Inmet and INPE:

Both have temperature and wind information but not precipitation forecasts.

Historical data is made available by Inmet in two separate ways:

  1. http://www.inmet.gov.br/portal/index.php?r=bdmep/bdmep Historical data on temperature, wind and precipitation. Said to be updated daily. Data sits behind user registration and access control.

  2. http://www.inmet.gov.br/portal/index.php?r=estacoes/estacoesAutomaticas Historical data on temperature, wind and precipitation from automatic weather stations. Updated hourly. Available in CSV but users have to fill in a captcha.
