I know I can google each data point (latitude, longitude, date) one by one and find if the government of that country has archived past weather information. But this will take infinite amount of time for large datasets in a wide range of date and location worldwide. Is there any way to get around this? Thank you so much.

  • $\begingroup$ Your best bet is probably to look into global earth system models (commonly used by climate scientists) - although this will give you fairly coarse-resolution modelled information rather than measurements. A reanalysis product might be better, if there's a suitable global one. Hopefully somebody who actually knows will be along ;-) $\endgroup$ – Semidiurnal Simon Sep 17 at 20:01
