Wisley (99080)
Kew Gardens (99095)

Remote attempts to resolve issues have not been successful. Movement of Met

Default Missing obbservations

Two of these sites are quite long-running climat. stations. Wisley (records from 1904) has been out of action since Boxing Day, in fact. I hope that both here and at Kew Gardens, they are making manual 09h observations. Presumably they are aware of the failure of the auto equipment - over the years I've had a bit of contact with observers at both sites and Wisley staff have noticed slight differences between the manual and auto obs, but that's another matter for now!
