Met Office (formerly Meteorological Office) is the United Kingdom's national weather service. Met Office provides shipping, weather, flood, air quality, and seasonal forecasts and advisories, as well as the Weather Observations Website (WOW). WOW is an interactive service for viewing measurements such as temperature, wind speed/direction, snowfall, photos, and more. Registered users can upload data to WOW, providing detailed, site-specific observations, and an API is available for automatic and bulk uploads. The API can be used directly or through specific meteorology software.
