Welcome to the Dorset Live Weather website. The weather station updates every minute. You will find options in the naviation pane which will take you to data pages.
Those who are using a PWS (personal weather station) app and would like to use the weather stations realtime.txt data can do so by following the realtime data link on the left.
Dorset Live Weather started about 10 years ago and quickly become a hub for Dorset residents wanting to know local live weather. The main weather station posted live weather updates onto the Twitter page every hour on the hour. This ran for many years and Dorset Live Weather was featured in the BBC, Dorset Echo, Bournemouth Echo and other news agencies. The website was run by one person with an interest in amateur weather, technology and website design.
I mainly ran the website throughout late stages of school, college and then at the early start of my IT career. As with many websites they take up a lot of time and sadly Dorset Live Weather was much of the same. Since then my career in IT has taken off and I haven't been able to apply as much time as I would like to this website. I still needed a location to upload weather data as I have an app on my phone which shows my personal weather station information.
The app I use uses the realtime.txt file generated by the weather station logger. This data is then uploaded to the web server you are viewing this website on in raw format and then devices read the text file mentioned above. As other people use this text document I decided to create a website which will allow visitors of this website to easily view the realtime.txt file and two other consoles which will display the data in a graphical way, this can be found in the menu on the left.
