The University of Leeds automatic weather station (AWS) data describe meteorological measurements taken by 16 AWSs across the UK on the 6th of June 2005. All data were sampled at 3 second intervals. The dataset contains measurements of wind direction, wind speed, air pressure, surface pressure, and relative humidity.
