Welcome to Teignmouth Weather Station

Map of UK showing TeignmouthTeignmouth 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. I also manually observe snow depth and rainfall from a standard 5 inch rain gauge as this offers a more accurate measure of precipitation for long-term climate statistics.

Live weather data is uploaded to this website every 10 minutes and graphs showing conditions over the past day, week, month, 3 months and year are also provided. I've also a summary of the local climate along with local weather forecasts and links to 70
other weather stations in Devon.


WaveRex Data National Coastwatch Institute Teignmouth Lookout This weather station Teignmouth Climate Station Here's a couple of graphs showing monthly rainfall and temperature statistics for 2013 and 2014 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 more climate statistics at a later date.


Rainfall was measured using a standard manual gauge read at 09hrs GMT (the month starts at 09hrs GMT on the 1st of each month) and temperatures also read at 09hrs GMT (month starts at 09hrs GMT on the 1st for max temps and 09hrs on previous day for min).
 
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:

» National Coastwatch Institute (NCI) Teignmouth Lookout

Run by Teignbridge DC on the Den. Daily manual climate observations have been made at 09:00 GMT for over 100 years making it a very impressive & unique record of the town's weather. The site meets strict criteria laid down by the Met Office. Recent data can be viewed online & a daily report is published in the window of the Resorts Office by the pier
