We offer a range of different NWP Models to provide data that meets your needs. Find out more about our Numerical Weather Prediction model data.
We can provide observational weather data from UK and global marine observations.
Rainfall radar data is available in a Met Office digital format (NIMROD) for which decodes are freely available. Our rainfall radar products cover the UK, Ireland and much of Europe.
The Met Office system which produces the lightning location data is known as ATDNet (Arrival Time Difference Network). The ATDNet system is an automatic thunderstorm location network comprising seven autonomous outstations across Europe to sense lightning flashes over a wide and variable geographical area. The system is vertically polarised to detect mainly cloud to ground lightning.
We can provide coverage for global, European and UK & Ireland domains.
