    I had bookmarks in my browser to take me to my local MetOffice station data on weathercast.co.uk, where it was shown in a useful table format. I noticed last night that they now forward to a WeatherPro website and so does the main weathercast.co.uk website. I don't know what's happened.

    However, after some Googling I found the data's still available in the same table format on the Meteoservices.be website, e.g. www.meteoservices.be/be/home/weer/weer-wereldwijd/waarnemingen/obsid/99127.html

    It looks the same as Weathercast and I've just found what seems to be a French version at www.meteo24.fr 

    Hopefully these sites won't go the same way as the Weathercast one, but sadly I wouldn't be surprised if they do given they appear to be foreign versions of Weathercast.

    Argh... as I feared, the Belgium and French sites I linked to above now redirect to Weatherpro.com.

    Are there any websites where you can view MetO hourly data in tabular format, as you used to be able to via Weathercast?

    Thanks.

    I noticed the same thing, I found it very handy to see hourly readings for the past week from various sites around the UK and further afield, such as when looking at data for various parts of France during the June and July 2019 heatwaves.

    I've had a look around and haven't so far been able to find any in tabular format that are as good, the nearest I've found is Meteosat, e.g. https://meteostat.net/en/station/03377?t=2021-01-22/2021-01-28

    It's a lot better than nothing, but disappointing to lose such a good source of hourly data.

    Unfortunately that doesn't seem to have all stations - at least it doesn't have my two local ones (Andrewsfield 03684 and Writtle 99127).

    I can't believe the MetOffice is still so bad at providing this basic info free of charge.

    Just found another site which has Writtle and allows downloading the last 2 weeks of data:

    https://www.meteoblue.com/en/weather/archive/export/writtle_united-kingdom_2633481

    Surprised I didn't find this earlier, but search engines seem to downrank that site unless I specify certain weather stations such as Writtle.

    Sadly I found in the past that the MeteoBlue site never tallied up with what was said on Weathercast (or if hourly temps were reported by the MetO on Twitter or something). I'm not sure why!

    Disappointing, could be the end of 9 years of data downloaded for hundreds of UK stations.

    Weathercast was a decent site, been replaced by utter garbage at the moment.

    Andrewsfield data is available quite widely as it is a SYNOP site so is carried by Ogimet for example - enter the WMO number in this form -

    Hourly data can be found by clicking on the dates.

    Skylink offers a wider range of sites, some that weren't available on weathercast. Not convinced by the accuracy of all the stations but a potentially useful and interesting resource -

    SKYLINKWEATHER.COM

    Current weather for the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand

    Alas no Writtle...... but for that try weatherobs, fantastic site, possibly better than weathercast for viewing observations, which includes the additional Met Office sites as well as the standard WMO SYNOP and METAR locations - 

    WWW.WEATHEROBS.COM

    Global weather observations (METAR, SYNOP, BUOY, SHIP, TAF, CWOP) decoded to enable display of latest temperatures, weather, snow depths, precipitation, wind and wave conditions and more
