Observation stations within the WAHRAIN (Water Authorities Hourly RAINfall) Station Network transmit their observations in the form of a Met Form 7113 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.

More Information (under review)

For more information on the observation stations and instruments used to collect measurements which are transmitted in a WAHRAIN 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 WAHRAIN message, the MIDAS stations map gives the exact locations of all conforming observation stations.
