Actual Live Weather from three key UK South Coast Locations

Postby WeatherCam » Fri Aug 06, 2004 8:26 am


Some advice XCweather is using the ECMWF Airport Data from all the various UK airports - and then configuring it in their own interface and then time stamping it as "Current Time" - in fact the data can often be 4 hours out - that said it's still good at giving an overall picture of the whole of the UK - but will not be, like WindGuru etc able to differentiate for local weather patterns which is normal in the warmer months.

Along various parts of the UK South Coast from Portsmouth to Brighton, actual wind can vary by at least 12knts from one location to another - this is due to the local thermal (sea breezes) that occur this time of year - at there you'll see actual weather updating every minute, from one of the "windiest" locations together with links to Hayling & Shoreham and others so you can compare the actual wind.

Weather Station Site from West Wales

Postby justal » Wed Jan 04, 2006 9:28 pm

I've recently installed a weather station here in Borth at the northern end of the beach and made the data available via Forces-of-Nature. The station was set up due to rquests from kiters that use the local beaches of Borth, Ynyslas and Aberdovey. It is updated every minute with the latest weather conditions. Histroical data is also presented and various graphs and charts are available in addition to hourly, daily, monthly, yearly and all time extremes.

There is a small subscription to access the data which will hopefully eventually cover the set up costs and pay to keep the station up and running.
