The Automatic Weather Station at Eton
The Geography Department maintains a Davis Automatic Weather Station which is located on the top of the tower at Cannon Yard Schools. It continuously records most weather variables, and it streams the data to an external website where Eton’s current weather can be viewed. Measurements recorded by the weather station include temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction, rainfall, and atmospheric pressure. Measurements are logged and stored on computer every half hour so that, in addition to the real time data, we have archived weather data spanning several years. As well as being a resource for the Eton community, the weather station is a helpful tool for teaching about the principles of weather recording and meteorology, as well as the vagaries of the English climate!
