About The Weather Pages

The Department of Electronics maintains the weather station for the University of York. This has proved to be very popular both in the UK and abroad, and is used for research work in the department and elsewhere, with enquiries being received from holidaymakers from Virginia, and prospective students from China wondering what clothes to pack.

Vaisala Weather System

Several notable events have been recorded by the equipment, inclupding the exceptional rainfall in 2000 that caused severe flooding around York (although not, thankfully, at the University campus), and the gust of wind at approximately 11:00 on Boxing Day 1998 that caused the roof of the Jack Lyons Concert Hall to blow off.
