Eskdalemuir Observatory is part of the UK Met Office official observation network and the data that it provides is available in WOW. Likewise, Met Office Meteorologists were keeping an eye on WOW alongside official Met Office network temperature data. The observations then undergo a rigorous quality control process before being accepted into the official UK climate record. As a meteorologist by trade, I know the real value that observations and ground truth can have (when viewed with appropriate caution of course!), and the dense network of observations provided by WOW can be really handy when looking at the weather at a local level. The ways of taking readings are relatively low tech, with most observations made using standard thermometers, measuring cylinders and visual observations. So I have made some modifications to it by extending the cables in order to optimally position the various instruments, and the wind/sunshine sensors are currently mounted on a 10ft cranked pole which will eventually be sited on the gable end of my house, at a standard and well exposed 10 metres. One issue I have is that my relatively sheltered back garden isnt really suitably exposed in order to provide gold standard measurements of wind or sunshine, but it is representative of a back garden on the edge of a moderate sized town. Weve a few things planned for this data, check back in a few weeks for more information. As well as WOW, Cumulus generates content for a number of webpages I run, including real-time readouts of the 1-minute data, sends me e-mails with daily reports and even generates a text file which can be picked up by an app on my phone so the latest observation is always to hand when I need it. If these new weather patterns become the norm, then we may need to adapt what we grow in the future. Conversely, we may also need to review whether we continue to bring in more moisture-loving, temperate species.
