Automatic Weather Station - Information

The automatic weather station at Pitsford School captures data on temperature, humidity, rainfall, sunshine, solar radiation, wind speed and direction, barometric pressure and tendency, evapotranspiration and uv radiation every 10-15 minutes. If the station has not uploaded data for some time, please check our status report for an explanation. Data indicated * refers to the previous 12 hours.

Two hardware and software systems are used. Most of the data is obtained using equipment manufactured by Instromet Ltd  with supplementary and graphical data using Davis equipment. Slight discrepancies may be observed between graphical displays and numerical values owing to the different methods of measurement. For accurate data, users should consult the manual readings taken using standard instruments at 0900 GMT available here.

The station also benefits from having a Boltek lightning detection system which can provide an early warning of approaching thunderstorms across the county as well as a fully automated email messaging service (TSentry). You can dial up the automatic weather station for the latest weather data on the move (07807 551391) as well as receive SMS text messages.
