West End Weather, Dundee
The original Dundee West End Weatherstation was established in 2002 using a Davis Vantage Pro and collected weather data reliably (mostly) until early 2017 when it was updated with a new Davis Vantage Pro2.
Who runs the Weather Station?
Geoff Barton established and maintains the weatherstation. He has a day job as well... The Dundee weatherstation has received some press attention over the years and data from it have been used in several local research projects about renewable energy.
A highlight in 2013 was a 3 minute feature on the BBC2 Programme Landward following an interview with BBC weather presenter Judith Ralston . Some still photos from that day give an idea of what was involved!
