Data after 18 March 2017

Air temperature (Tair_avg), relative humidity (RH), rainfall (Rain), wind speed (WS_avg) and wind direction (dir) are recorded and can be downloaded below. Measurements are made every 2 seconds and averaged over 15 minute intervals. 

Start date:

End date:


Current data is downloaded for a custom period by using the data extractor form to the left of this text. Simply enter the required start date, end date and data format. It is important to use the correct date format as displayed in the text fields (e.g. 2016-06-01-12:00:00 for midday on 1st June, 2016).

The data will either be downloaded to a file, or displayed as a web page. 

Data is updated at 23:59 each evening, so the most recent measurements are for yesterday.

For CSV files: A file named get_data will be downloaded. The downloaded file type may not be recognised, but is valid and can be opened with a text editor or Spreadsheet program by first adding ".csv" to the filename.

Plots showing all variable are available here:

Plots get updated every night with the previous day and show the last seven days.
