Weather and climate data

World-leading science and technical expertise available for businesses, researchers and academics

Our extensive portfolio offers a range of global weather and climate data and services to clients across industry, academia and broadcast media. We also supply third party licensed data in the UK, on behalf of: 

  • European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) 
  • European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT)

As the UK’s National Meteorological Service, we are well versed in collecting, generating, verifying, interpreting and applying data. Many organisations already rely on the data we provide for critical decision-making or commercial reuse.

Our data services include the provision of Public Sector Information (PSI) data, data available for re-use under license, open data sets available with free access and industry specific data for business use.
