Weather Station Details & Location

I’ve been recording weather records using a Davis weather station set up in the garden since late 2009.


These records are downloaded from the weather station to my computer where they are stored and analysed using specialist weather data software and Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.


Our weather station is located in our garden in the town of Ossett West Yorkshire England.


Where we live has a Maritime temperate climate. Maritime temperate regions are found in areas near coasts where the sea and onshore winds provide more rain and help to keep the temperatures level throughout the year.


Typical characteristics of our climate are its unpredictability, whilst having recognised characteristics, most of the seasons will also have very varied weather within them. Rain, fog and lower temperatures may not be uncommon even in summer.



This weather site is operated as an amateur weather station site and should not be used as official data. I make every effort to ensure my data is as accurate as possible but I cannot guarantee that the data meets the requirements of the Meteorological Office or other professional weather monitoring organisations.
