I have been able to find very detailed weather datasets from noaa (ftp://ftp.ncdc.noaa.gov/pub/data/noaa/). But I realized that for my purposes I can not simply use weather prediction probabilities to get probable weather forecasts of the time.
I need a dataset of dates and what weather people thought that particular date would have days or weeks in advance of it. In other words: actual weather, weather predicted 1d ago, 2d ago, 3d ago, ... 2 weeks ago (or something).
Does such a dataset exist? I fully anticipate that this is too niche and possibly not public. If so, would anyone know if it's possible to rerun a climate model to generate accurate weather forecasts of the time? Or are such algorithms proprietary?
