The Canadian Meteorological Markup Language (CMML), also called meteocode, is an XML format containing the official Weather Elements forecasted by Environment Canada.
The meteocode provides you hourly values of meteorological parameters, such as:
- precipitation amount and type
- cloud cover
- dew point temperatures
- probability of precipitation
- obstacles to visibility
- UV index
- Cloud ceiling heights*
*Note though that most of the time the cloud ceiling height is not modified, and is extracted directly from the model.
