Description

With the end of February 2019, ECMWF will terminate their ECMWF Web API access to ERA5 data.

This is because the C3S (Copernicus Climate Change Service) has build a new service, the Climate Data Store (CDS)https://cds.climate.copernicus.eu/.
Up to now, they provide online access to a limited set of ERA5 pressure and single level data.
The rest is still archived in MARS on ECMWF servers.
At some point in time, they will move all ERA5 data to the CDS.

Therefore a new feature for flex_extract have to be added to support ERA5 data download with the new CDS APIhttps://pypi.org/project/cdsapi/.
