HWND6910 (Hourly WIND from Metform 6910) Station Network

Status: Not defined
Publication State:


Observation stations within the HWND6910 (Hourly WIND from Metform 6910) Station Network transmit their observations in the form of a Met Form 6910 message. Many stations with autographic or other recording instruments provide analyses of hourly values for climate purposes and the data are usually returned on Met Forms at the end of the month. The wind observations are returned on the Met Form 6910 from 280 observation stations worldwide. The HWND6910 message contains observed elements such as the mean wind direction, mean wind speed, and direction of maximum gust.

More Information (under review)

For more information on the observation stations and instruments used to collect measurements which are transmitted in a HWND6910 message, the Met Office Surface Data Users Guide, describes the meteorological surface data in the Met Office Database - MIDAS.

For more information about the observation stations which transmit the HWND6910 message, the MIDAS stations map gives the exact locations of all conforming observation stations.

Who to contact

If you have queries about these pages or about obtaining the Met Office surface stations data from the BADC then you should contact CEDA Support. Your query should be answered within one working day. When follow-up work is required, the CEDA support will carry out the work as quickly and efficiently as possible, and in any case, the user will be kept informed of progress.
