Weather station

We have installed a wireless Davis Vantage Pro 2 automatic weather station and manual rain gauge at our Broughton Park office near Skipton, North Yorkshire.  Data recorded from this weather station is freely available for use by schools, universities and communities.

The weather station measures air temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction, rainfall and pressure. In addition, a manual rain gauge is read at 09:00 GMT each day for calibration purposes.

The data can be used for a variety of educational projects, for example weather reporting, understanding meteorological measurements and data handling.

Real time weather information is available to view on the Met Office Weather Observations Website (WOW), simply search for ‘JBA Trust’.  Regular updates are also available through Twitter by following @JBATrustWeather.

If you are interested in using data from our weather station, please visit the ‘JBA Trust’ site on WOW or contact us for further details.

You can watch other JBA Trust videos on our YouTube channel.
