What is Weatherobs?

Weatherobs displays global weather observations.

Where does the data come from?

Weatherobs displays freely available METAR, SYNOP, SHIP, BUOY and CWOP weather observations.

METARs typically come from airports or permanent weather observation stations. They are normally taken once an hour during hours of operation of the station, however more frequent weather observations can be taken if weather conditions change rapidly.

SYNOP observations often include additional climatological information such as precipitation amounts which the METAR reports do not include (with the exception of a few countries, notably the USA). Synop information is generally available every 3 or 6 hours. Some stations do issue reports every hour but this data is not always made freely available by national meteorological departments.

SHIP and BUOY observations are requested by the national meteorological agencies to give a picture of actual conditions at the surface offshore.

CWOP (Citizen Weather Observer Program) data is recorded by weather enthusiasts with Personal Weather Stations (PWS). This data is then uploaded to NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) who assimilate it into their model data ingest system, alongside the METAR, SYMOP, SHIP and BUOY data. Anyone with a PWS and the correct software can join the CWOP program at wxqa.­com, and in turn view their observations alongside others on weatherobs.com

The raw data used to create this site comes from the servers of NOAA and the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in the USA.
