Welcome to my personal weather station

I cannot guarantee the accuracy of meterological information presented on this site. Although I do make every effort to ensure it as accurate as possible, you should not make any decisions based on information obtained here or from any other unofficial weather station.

The weather station in use up to 19 December 2015 was the Fine Offset WH1080 (Maplin version) but the external transmitter for this unit failed completely in mid-October 2015 following several months of occasional short interruptions with consequent loss or corruption of data. Please be aware of this when looking at historical data for the station.

WeatherDuinoFrom 10:45am GMT on Sunday 20 December 2015, data is supplied by WeatherDuino Pro2 hardware, a very versatile and adaptable system. Currently it continues to use the original Fine Offset / Maplin instruments though they are to be replaced shortly. This station is now running Cumulus 3 and I intend to work on eliminating as much as possible of the innacurate historic information.

These pages are updated every 10 minutes. The meteorological day used at this station ends at midnight.
