Where can I find high-precision wind data from a city?

    Hey everyone!
    I'm doing a data science internship and was requested to make an analysis on the evolution of wind attributes (mainly speed) throughout Buenos Aires city's neighborhoods and am looking for the appropriate data.
    I have already asked providers such as Meteoblue and Weather Source for a sample (they sell the data at much larger scales and for automated requests, I just need a relatively little amount of both) and in the meantime I'd like to know if there are other places from where I could look for this data.  Does anyone know any?

    Thanks in advance

    Perhaps this webpage points to a solution https://cloud.ibm.com/docs/Weather/index.html
    Then there is R Studio, it covers Argentina https://www.rdocumentation.org/packages/weatherData/versions/0.5.0/topics/IntlWxStations

    Thanks! The IBM's weather data API looks quite promising! I'll try it out and tell you how it goes.

    Hi Marco:
    May be the Airport Authorities could help you with wind speed data. They need to collect the wind data to see if there is any microbusts / downbursts at the ground levels to ensure prior safe landing directions given to pilots.

    That's true, but it seems that in Buenos Aires there is a very little number of public stations, it has to be a satellite-driven estimator.
    Still, the idea of contacting the airport sounds good! They should know a bunch of this matters.
    Thanks
