Useful Links for historical weather

Recommended Posts

Hey,

I have compiled this long list of useful links to sources which contain historical weather articles, photos, diaries etc. If you like our historical weather articles we create here on Metcast and want to further your knowledge on the events or maybe further your research, these links will provide you with the information you require. There are many sources out there for the weather historian to look at and this will be a growing list of useful links over time as more sources are created and found. I hope this list gives a lot of use to you weather historians and climatologists in the UK and Ireland.

    • Yes i did Mark, sorry for not responding i honestly thought I mate. 
    • Did you ever get this @Brent? Hoping people get notifications when we respond... 🤔
    • Could euro4 be right? Let's start the #uksnow debate... 👀
    • We'll be conducting updates to our Snow Watch advisory over the next few weeks. We'll post them here once ready and we'd appreciate if you can provide feedback as to how helpful you may find these updates.  Here's a sneak peak at what we'll be adding in the next week... 
    • Hi @Brent, so sorry nobody got back to you sooner.  I guess it would be appropriate to talk about Monday into Tuesday now. Early hours of Tuesday look to be your best chance, as the main rain band passes. Otherwise showers could catch you which maybe wintry. You probably have the best chance than most but showers and even within the main front will be hit and miss.  An easterly air flow would be most peoples best bet.
