Gloucestershire Weather. About Us

About Gloucestershire Weather

The first weather station set-up started here in 2005. It was a Lacross WS-2305 that was connected to the internet and fed the Weather Underground network, records and climate data started to be captured in September 2006. In July 2011 it was upgraded it to a Davis Instruments Vantage Pro2 Wireless 6312. It was further enhanced with the addition of a solar sensor to it in the autumn of 2011, a UV sensor in April 2012 and a suite of soil moisture and temperature probes in the summer of 2012.

Taking inspiration from some excellent independent weather websites around the world why not have one based in Gloucestershire? It started off under the domain in September 2006, but this was soon out-grown, so developed into in December of 2008.

The station was was created as a public service for residents of our surrounding area and others who have an interest in the weather and has expanded to encompass all of Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds.
This weather station is privately funded, owned and operated, and is located around our premisis on the outer edge of the Cotswolds.
