I would like to automatically fetch wind speed forecast data over my town with a python script.
I am looking for an available dataset and API to do so.
It is for a small personal project, so it is not demanding in terms of resolution and accuracy.
So far I have tried the following:
I have tried the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service, but I only found wind speed reanalysis products, and no forecast. https://ads.atmosphere.copernicus.eu/#!/search?text=&type=dataset
I have tried the Copernicus Climate Data Store, which seems to propose wind speed forecast datasets. But I couldn't download the data through their API, I am getting a "Resource not found" error, I have posted a comment on this Github issue: https://github.com/ecmwf/cdsapi/issues/7
I have tried the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, but there doesn't seem to be wind speed forecast in their public datasets. https://apps.ecmwf.int/datasets/
Any idea where to look?
EDIT: The Windy point forecast API is accessible through HTTP requests via python, but it's not free of charge. I will investigate the models that they use (listed here: https://api.windy.com/point-forecast/docs)
