Hourly observation reports as recorded in real time by the Met Office UK Monitoring System. It should be noted that sites will only report parameters based on the instrumentation installed at each site and we only make available those parameters published on the Met Office website. Observations are subject to final quality control by the Met Office after publication by DataPoint. The QC process can take up to six months to be completed and therefore any changes made will not be retrospectively applied to this dataset.
