of the Climate and Rainfall stations do not have a complete unbroken
record for any given element. Most data before 1941 are held
in paper format only. From 1941 onwards most of our data are held in
tables in an Ingres relational database. Climate data may not be reproduced,
re-used or redistributed for any commercial purpose whatsoever, or
distributed to a third party, without written permission from Met Éireann.
stations record meteorological elements on an hourly basis, such as air temperature, rainfall, wind speed, wind direction, atmospheric pressure, relative humidity, vapour pressure and soil temperatures. Manual stations have extra elements such as weather, cloud, visibility and sunshine. Estimated daily evaporation, potential evapotranspiration and soil moisture deficits are also available.
stations record meteorological elements on a daily
basis, such as rainfall and temperatures. Some record soil and
earth temperatures, sunshine, solar radiation and evaporation.
stations record daily rainfall amounts at 0900utc.
