New ACS at Durrow, Laois County

    A new automatic climate station (ACS) came online yesterday just east of Durrow in Laois County. This site is exactly 1km away from the current manual climatological station (MCS) and my own automatic weather station (AWS).

    The data is available in half-hourly intervals through the Weather Observations Website (WOW) at

    The ACS is in on open farmland atop a slight gravel ridge some ~200m in from the banks of the river Nore.

    I will try and get closer photos of the setup in the coming days as I know the farmer.
