Long-term measuring

The meteorological station at our Wallingford, Oxfordshire site has been measuring local weather conditions, including daily rainfall, sunshine and temperature parameters, since 1962. Observations are also made of cloud cover, present weather and visibility.

Daily manual data

These graphs display the data manually recorded from the Wallingford Meteorolgical Site over the last six months. Latest values are shown in the top right hand corner of each graph.

Key: Red and blue areas represent lowest or highest values recorded on each day over the period of record (the narrow envelope in the concrete minimum temperature exists as this has only been measured since May 2011). The grey line represents the long term average.
