Our Weather Station


We find it fascinating to track the fast changing weather conditions that occur so close to the sea, so we have set up our own station. Our information is uploaded to the website so you can see a full weather report at any time by clicking on the Davis Station Direct Readout link in the column on the left. For even more information you can go to our Current Weather page, view the Latest Forecast, or visit our Archives page, which has historical data for the past twelve months.

Our weather data is produced by a Davis Instruments Vantage Pro 2 professional monitoring station linked to a PC running "WeatherLink" software. The anemometer is 26 feet above the ground and the wireless linked, solar powered station is located on the north-western edge of Whitby about 200 yards from the sea, 150 feet above mean sea level.
