  1. 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....

      http://datapoint.metoffice.gov.uk/public/data/val/wxfcs/all/datatype/sitelist?key=<EnterYourAPIKeyHere>

      Substitute 3840 below, with your local station ID

      http://datapoint.metoffice.gov.uk/public/data/val/wxobs/all/xml/3840?res=hourly&key=<EnterYourAPIKeyHere>

      to get hourly observations. The API is all documented on the site to access other data.

      Have fun.

      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):

      https://www.ogimet.com/indicativos.phtml.en

      Or use the ID to choose your time period here (at least from late 1999 onwards)

      https://www.ogimet.com/gsynres.phtml.en

      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).
