Live Weather Central London: Flash and iPhone


After a few months out of action due to a dodgy anemometer a trip to the roof today has bought our weather station back online.

The weather station is located on the roof of 1-19 Torrington Place, just off Tottenham Court Road in Central London, providing a live feed every two seconds.

We also have an ajax powered version formatted for the iPhone – simply double tap to zoom into each section, again data updates every two seconds:

Perfect for checking the weather in London live while sitting on the bus (or is that just us?)

    Er, can’t you look out of the bus window instead?

    lol you can, but would you know how mach rain has fallen in the last hour or the highest gust of wind?

    Or the wind chill factor… etc etc just by looking out the window.

    We know.. perhaps it is just us.

    “providing a live feed every two seconds”

    … this is brilliant. Why not make the feed available so others can use the data too?

    The raw feed can be found at:

    The output comes from Weather Display and its quite easy to use if anyone wants to šŸ™‚

    We have a new iPhone version – still needs some tweaks but with a quick tap you can get Temp/Humidity/Pressure/Wind/Rain and Solar all on one screen with updates:
