SREW (Synoptic Rainfall Europe West) Station Network

Status: Not defined
Publication State:


Observation stations within the SREW (Synoptic Rainfall Europe West) Station Network transmit their observations in the form of a SREW message. The SREW message allows for real time exchange of hourly rainfall accumulations between European countries. The SREW message is transmitted by 174 UK observation stations and 5 observation stations outside of the UK (The Falkland Islands, Paraguay, St Helena, Gibraltar, and Cyprus). Many stations have a record of hourly rainfall observations stretching back to 1959 or, in some cases, earlier.

More Information (under review)

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