Free weather data service

We provide raw weather, water, climate and environmental data via the Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC) Datamart.

Through this service, you will find data such as:

  • numerical weather and environmental prediction forecasts (several forecast hours available according to the models) for North America or the world offered in GRIB2 and NetCDF format
  • probability forecasts derived using a technique called “ensemble forecasting”
  • observed and forecast vertical temperature profiles
  • official forecasts with hourly values in different formats (XML, CSV)
  • weather warning data and products in the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) format
  • a variety of radar images, including precipitation accumulations
  • hourly Canadian site observations in XML format
  • varied national and international weather bulletins in text format
  • air quality data
  • wave model data
  • trajectories data (hurricanes, storms)
  • climate data

New data, information and formats are added as they become available.
