Single Status Update
Anyone know where I can view daily weather records from my local Met Office weather station? Is this available via a link or would I have to request it?

No worries. It's recent observations, not historical. I think you have to contact them for that.
Just tried it. Works a treat. Register for free, retrieve your API Key from account settings.
Get your local station ID from this URL....
Substitute 3840 below, with your local station ID
to get hourly observations. The API is all documented on the site to access other data.
If it's a station with a WMO ID one third party site I use is 'Ogimet'
You can search it's name here if you don't know the index (gives last 30 days):
Or use the ID to choose your time period here (at least from late 1999 onwards)
Be careful to make the hour the day ends something logical (and I've noticed midnight/morning hours makes the daily figures appear for the date after the one on which they occurred).
