Historic Weather Data

Historic weather data

The Department for Education (DfE) have made the decision that funding for Met Office Education Services will not continue beyond the current financial year (2013/14). The discontinuation is a result of funding cuts within the DfE and is part of a wider rationalisation of education services. The funding cuts are not a reflection of Met Office standards - the services have and continue to receive plaudits from teachers and pupils alike.

Unfortunately from 31 March 2014 we will no longer be able to support curriculum and education specific enquiries. We will continue to handle general weather and climate enquiries through our main Weather Desk channels but are unable to answer more specific education queries or provide datasets free to the public.
