At UBDC we are collecting hourly observations for the last 24 hours for approximately 140 locations across the UK. We are collecting the data via the Met Office API on a daily basis. Our collection starts from 30 November 2011 till 6 February 2017 and then 23 January 2018 to date. We have a gap from 7 February 2017 to 22 January 2018. Hourly observation reports as recorded in real time by the Met Office UK Monitoring System. Sites only reports parameters based on the instrumentation installed at each site and Met Office (where the below parameter is not available no data is returned). Observations are subject to final quality control by the Met Office after publication by Data Point. The QC process can take up to six months to be completed and therefore any changes made will not be retrospectively applied to this dataset.
