Teignmouth weather station is located 500m inland on the east side of the town. The site consists of a wireless Davis Vantage Pro 2 automatic weather station installed in May 2008 in a sheltered suburban back garden. Periodic upgrades to the site have included the addition of automated grass and soil thermometers, a soilmoisture probe, uv sensor and leaf wetness probe. Very limited manual observing is made beyond the measurement of snow depth.
Here's a couple of graphs showing monthly rainfall and temperature statistics for 2012 and 2013 alongside the 1981-2010 long-term climate values. If you click on the series names you can toggle the layers on and off. Similarly if you run your mouse over the image you can reveal the actual values for each data point. I'll add further climate statistics at a later date.
We're very fortunate in Teignmouth that there's quite a lot of meteorological, climatological and oceanographic monitoring sites in the town. Details of them are listed below and the sites are plotted on the map:
