UK wind map

Our UK wind map helps you compare up-to-date wind data from the Met Office with the historic data from the National Objective Analysis of Boundary Layer (NOABL).

The map highlights where the older, NOABL data set is over- or under-estimating wind speed in various regions across the UK, compared with the Met Office NCIC (National Climate Information Centre) UK wind climatology.
