Weather Forecast Model for Central Europe

Medard is a weather forecast model for Middle Europe and the Czech Republic. It also provides forecasts of concentrations of some pollutants, especially tropospheric ozone. I found this model very useful and reliable and I plan my outdoor activities based on it (it provides detail forecast for next 68 hours).

This non-profit project is run by the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. The web interface is not the best I think (yet it supports users well), it is all based on AJAX technologies while SEO is heavily underestimated. The enter page has almost no relevant texts in it and even the TITLE element is empty.
