FMI Hirlam Weather Model on Amazon AWS S3

I'd like to propose you to add this weather model to Windy.
HIRLAM (High Resolution Limited Area Model) is an operational synoptic and mesoscale weather prediction model. The model is developed by an international program formed by institutes from Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, the Netherlands, Ireland, Spain, Estonia and Lithuania. There is also close co-operation with France.
FMI provides its operational Hirlam model runs to be downloaded freely from AWS S3 bucket. The data is licenced by the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license (CC BY 4.0).
The data is updated four times a day with analysis hours 00, 06, 12 and 18. Corresponding model runs are available roughly five hours after analysis time (~ after model run has started).
@MacWan Thanks for the info, I now about HIRLAM, it seems promising. Now we want to add radar layer and then we will focus on adding some high resolution models. Thanks!
Hey Tom! Any news on the support for HIRLAM/HARMONIE? As a sailor I really like Windy but as Harmonie turns out to be be most accurate model in our region (The Netherlands) I cannot use Windy without having to double check the data with another site that does provide Harmonie.
Harmonie will make windy much more interesting for me to.
@robsmit Please let us know where to download these models
@ivo For some reason, I can't find any free source for HARMONIE models. Or any source for that matter.
Also, something interesting I've learned is that HARMONIE will eventually replace the HIRLAM model.

I have created a new topic here for HARMONIE, including the location of the Dutch data share.
The link to the KNMI data share you provided is to the 5.5km Europe version of HARMONIE, not to the 2.5km Dutch version. The 2.5km is the correct one, and can be found here https://data.knmi.nl/datasets/harmonie_arome_cy40_p1/0.2?q=harmonie.
Also, the discussion here about HARMONIE vs AROME is relevant:
