Weather Data


Similar to our wave and tide network, weather data is available for 3 locations around the South West coast. The Vaisala WXT520 automatic weather stations measure the following parameters:

  • Barometric pressure
  • Wind speed
  • Gust speed
  • Wind direction
  • Air temperature
  • UV, solar radiation, rainfall (site specific)

Measurements are taken over 10 minute intervals.

Met data for Perranporth prior to 2017 is courtesy and copyright of Plymouth University. Additionally, weather data for Exmouth is kindly provided to East Devon District Council by the National Coastwatch Institution.
