I would like to ask if there is a homepage where I can get weather radar data for Europe territory for free. I have looked in the internet, but can't find them. I will be very glad if someone can help me. (It would be ideal to get the rainfall or precipitation data for Latvia.)

  • Anastasios Ventouris, I am seeking for radar data, but on the most sites I saw only satellite data... – Student May 24 '14 at 10:51
  • This data is from Satellites openweathermap.org? – Tasos May 24 '14 at 10:58
  • If I understand correctly this data is from meteorlogic stations – Student May 24 '14 at 11:39
  • I have removed the "close" vote and I wait to see if anyone else has data from radar. Since I don't know anything about it. – Tasos May 24 '14 at 11:44

Weather radar data specific to Latvia can be found using NOAA's Radar Data tool. Just enter "Republic of Latvia" in the search box and you're off and running.

There are a large number of datasets covering international areas at the U.S. National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which maps some of the global daily indicators. The Global Historical Climatology Network-Daily (GHCN-D) is the data you are seeking.

International indicators of climate change and data collected from many organizations are available as well.

  • I tried to get data, you have adviced. But when I usedlink after I enter "Republic of Latvia" and then select by rectangle. I get error message "No features founded". Am I doing something wrong here? Also when I use link I also get error message: "Sorry, but no items match the search as specified". Is there some shance to get data like link but for Latvia? – Student May 26 '14 at 19:35
