*Copley is one of the few remaining manned Met Office stations. Observations are made usually at 09GMTand17GMT. During active weather, additional observations could be made. The automatic sensors download every second of every day, technology permitting, and are very useful on this website as the manual observations, although more accurate, soon become dated.
