Yes, indeed. But I think one problem might be whether it could be done via just a single account at openweather, though maybe they might be open to discussion for a worthwhile cause like CMX. but another alternative might be for individual users to have their own (free) account and then requests for forecast data would be made via their own individual credentials.
They do say that open-source software will be granted free access licences.
The free user licences we use for uploading can only access the 3 hour/5 day forecast data.
