Observation stations within the HWNDAUTO (Hourly WiND from AUTOmatic recording devices) Station Network transmit their observations in the form of a HWNDAUTO message. The HWNDAUTO message transmits mean hourly wind and gust records from wind logging equipment (DALE). Digital Anemograph Logging Equipment (DALE) is a logging device that records 1-minute averages of wind speed and direction plus the maximum gust speed and direction of the maximum gust. The HWNDAUTO message is transmitted from 79 observation stations in the UK.

More Information (under review)
For more information on the observation stations and instruments used to collect measurements which are transmitted in a HWNDAUTO 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 HWNDAUTO message, the MIDAS stations map gives the exact locations of all conforming observation stations.
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.
