About This Station
Welcome to my personal weather website - www.sheffieldwx.co.uk. I've been interested in meteorology since I was about 10 years old. I bought my first weather station in may 2007, an Oregon Scientific WMR100. It wasn't long before I wanted something better so I upgraded to an Oregon Scientific WMR200 on Mar 06, 2008. I replaced the Oregon Scientific WMR200 with a Davis Vantage Pro 2 (Wireless) on 21st February 2017, the weather station was installed and working on 2nd March 2017. The station is located in NW Sheffield. I wanted to share my data online, so I made my own weather website. The site is powered by a Davis Vantage Pro 2 (Wireless) weather station. This site and its data is collected using CumulusMX   (Build ) Software. The station is comprised of an anemometer, a rain gauge and a thermo-hydro sensor situated in as optimal positions as is possible for the highest accuracy possible.

The Anemometer is less than 3 metres off the ground, I'm looking at siting it at the recommended 10 metres in the near future.

About Sheffield
Sheffield is a city and metropolitan borough of South Yorkshire, England. Its name derives from the River Sheaf, which runs through the city. Historically a part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, and with some of its southern suburbs annexed from Derbyshire. The city has grown from its largely industrial roots to encompass a wider economic base. The population of the City of Sheffield is 555,500 (2010) and it is one of the eight largest regional English cities that make up the English Core Cities Group. During the 19th century, Sheffield gained an international reputation for steel production. Many innovations were developed locally, including crucible and stainless steel, fuelling an almost tenfold increase in the population during the Industrial Revolution. Sheffield received its municipal charter in 1893, officially becoming the City of Sheffield. International competition in iron and steel caused a decline in traditional local industries during the 1970s and 1980s, coinciding with the collapse of coal mining in the area. The 21st century has seen extensive redevelopment in Sheffield along with other British cities. Sheffield's gross value added (GVA) has increased by 60% since 1997, standing at £9.2 billion in 2007. The economy has experienced steady growth averaging around 5% annually, greater than that of the broader region of Yorkshire and the Humber. The city is located within the valleys of the River Don and its four tributaries, the Loxley, the Porter Brook, the Rivelin, and the Sheaf. 61% of Sheffield's entire area is green space, and a third of the city lies within the Peak District National Park. There are more than 200 parks, woodlands and gardens in the city, and an estimated 2.5 million trees, giving Sheffield the highest ratio of trees to people of any city in Europe.     Source
