Big news out of the ECMWF today as they ditch their paywall for access to much of their products.
https://www.ecmwf.int/en/about/media-centre/news/2020/ecmwf-moves-towards-policy-open-data

From today (7 October 2020), hundreds of ECMWF forecast charts will become free and accessible to all.

Medium-range, extended-range and long-range forecast charts of temperature, wind, precipitation, clouds and ocean waves are just some of the products that are becoming available. With ECMWF’s focus on ensemble prediction, charts also cover probability-based information, which provides a guide to forecast confidence. The likelihood of extreme conditions, as well as tropical and extratropical cyclone activity, are also included.

Seems like the website is under a fair amount of load ATM as it's really slow and won't load all frames.
But not surprising given the recent announcement.
