Weather Observations Website

Interested in sharing your weather observations?

The Weather Observations Website was launched in June 2011 by the Met Office, with support from the Royal Meteorological Society and the Department for Education, for weather observers across the UK - which could include weather reports from you.

The purpose of the website is to provide a platform for the sharing of current weather observations from all around the globe, regardless of where they come from, what level of detail or the frequency of reports.


Using the Weather Observations Website (WOW), we are giving all of you the chance to send us local observations of weather in your area. These observations can be ones you have recorded on specially-designed digital, scientific or wireless weather stations or just by looking out of the window or sending in a photo.

It is hoped that the website will encourage further growth in the UK's weather enthusiast observing community and help educate children about the weather and that this will become the UK's largest source of weather observations.

Who is involved in WOW?

WOW has been set up in partnership with the Royal Meteorological Society, the  Department for Education and the Public Weather Service to help coordinate the growth of the amateur observing community in the UK.
