Options to view the Canadian models, RDPS and GDPS
I would love to see support for the RDPS and GDPS Canadian models. I would be very useful for comparing with the other models already supported with Windy.
Are they available as open data?

@Tomber42 Is this maybe what you're looking for? GRIB data is available for free
"The Meteorological Service of Canada makes this GRIB2 format database available to private sector meteorologists, academics, and the general public. It contains data from analysis systems along with output from many of the Canadian Meteorological Centre's Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models. The data is free, under standard terms and conditions."
In fact, most models available from the Canadian Meteorological Centre just got a major update today. The GDPS got a resolution shrink from 25 km to 15 km (which I may point out is currently better than the GFS). There are other changes, but that is the biggest one. All the details on the updates can be found here: http://collaboration.cmc.ec.gc.ca/cmc/CMOI/product_guide/docs/changes_e.html
Finally, I would just like to mention the HRDPS model which would be a nice add to Windy. It is Canada's answer to the HRRR. It has a resolution of 2.5 km and is updated four times a day.

If it is open source and for free it would be a great addition for all Canadians!
