    If you are looking for a clean, annotated corpus I'm afraid
    I can't help you, but what I have on offer is a collection
    of (hourly downloaded) Irish TV teletext weather forecasts
    from October 1996 onwards. Straight, plain ascii downloads,
    including all the errors, typos, etc, but pretty easy to

    Some 20 million word tokens and some different 5400 word forms
    (isn't it amazing that you need so little to describe all weather
    conditions over a period of 6 years?).

    Just have a look at
    and contact me if you are interested or need more info.
