This weather station is located near to the seafront in Littlehampton. Sensors measure wind speed and direction, air pressure, humidity and temperature, with the data being uploaded to our website every 5 minutes. Manufactured by Davis Instruments, readings are provided with a general accuracy of ±5% for wind, ±1°C for temp and ±2mb for pressure.

No two weather station installations are the same and sensor location is often the result of a compromise. Due to security considerations, our temperature sensor is located at a height of 6m rather than the standard 1.25m; there may therefore be a slight variation if comparing our readings with others locally.

Note: Knots = MPH x 0.868
