I am searching for either global or preferabaly european maximum daily temperature forecasts I dont care for any historic data. To give you an example: I wake up in the morning and want to know the maximum temperature for today and for the next three days. For my application it would be best if the data is in any kind of GIS or geographic data format. I tried searching the ECMWF but to no avail.
There are over 400 climate-related datasets there. It is possible to analyze the data on-line, make graphics, and refer easily back to those through the URLs. The data can be saved in many formats, including GIS, and read directly into software such as MATLAB. There is a little bit of a learning curve, but it is very powerful. Tutorials can help if you are new to it.
