Historic station data

This page will be replaced before the end of 2014


Notice of change

Our web site upgrade is nearly completed and before the end of the year any requests made for these pages will be redirected to their replacements. The new site looks different, but the information is either the same, or there is more of it. You can use the links below for the new pages.

Why have we done this?

Map showing stations

Blue dots indicate stations which are now closed.

The data consist of:

  • Mean daily maximum temperature (tmax)
  • Mean daily minimum temperature (tmin)
  • Days of air frost (af)
  • Total rainfall (rain)
  • Total sunshine duration (sun)

The monthly mean temperature is calculated from the average of the mean daily maximum and mean daily minimum temperature i.e. (tmax+tmin)/2

Missing data (more than two days missing in a month) have been indicated by "---".

Estimated data (where available) have been indicated by "*" after the value.

Sunshine data using a Kipp and Zonen sensor have been indicated by a "#" after the value. All other sunshine data have been recorded using a Campbell-Stokes recorder.


Station data files are updated on a rolling monthly basis, around 10 days after the end of the month. Data are indicated as provisional until the full network quality control has been carried out. After this, data are final.

No allowances have been made for small site changes and developments in instrumentation.

Data and statistics for other stations, and associated charges, can be obtained by contacting our Customer Centre.
