The weather observations website (WOW) is a platform that enables anyone to get involved and submit, share and visualise their weather observations.

Weather Observations Website

Project topic: Climate

A platform for the sharing of current weather observations from all around the globe.  Send the Met Office local observations of weather in your area. These observations can be ones you have recorded on specially-designed digital, scientific or wireless weather stations or just by looking out of the window or sending in a photo

  • Become a Voluntary Climate Observer - The Met Office operates a network of Voluntary Observers, who contribute daily climatological readings. The data reported by our Voluntary Observers is uploaded via WOW. During the month these records go through quality checking before being stored in the permanent archive and forming an important part of the climatological record for the UK.
  • Report severe weather - The Met Office has an interest in knowing where the weather is having a significant impact on people, infrastructure, transport and other activities.
