Monthly Weather Report of the Meteorological Office 1907 to date. [A 300]
These Reports are not in the Museum Library. An unbroken series in the Port Erin Biol. Station may be consulted by any person authorised by the Museum authorities. The sea temperatures, as given in the maps accompanying the Monthly Weather Reports, are the 'means' of several coastal and light-ship stations in each case. The southern Irish Sea temperature is the mean of the readings supplied by the following:-N.W. Lightship, Skulmartin, Port Erin Biol. Station, and Selker.
The 'Monthly Weather Report of the Meteorological Office' gives, every month, the following data from many stations, including Douglas, Isle of Man. [District 6B.]

Air temp. in deg. F.

Mean max. temp. (A)
Mean min. temp. (B)
Mean of (A) and (B) Deviation from normal
Absolute max. temp. and date
Absolute min. temp. and date ,


Total rainfall, in. and mm.
Deviation from normal
Most in a day, amount and date

Number of days in the month on which were recorded

0.2 mm, or more precipitation
1 mm. or more do. Snow.
Snow lying.
Ground Frost.

Bright sunshine

Mean hours per day.
Deviation from normal.
Per cent. of possible.

Mean atmospheric pressure.
Deviation from normal.

Temperature and humidity.

Dry bulb reading
Depression of wet bulb
Vapour pressure
Relative humidity

Mean cloud amount.

No. of days of stated cloud amount visibility.
No. of days of several degrees.
Wind force.
No. of observations of several strengths, with directions.

Weekly Weather Report of the Meteorological Office 1907 to Feb. 1928. [A 300]
This gives `weekly' means of the more important of the foregoing values from all stations, including Douglas. Discontinued as from Feb. 1928.

The Book of Normals of Meteorological Elements for the British Isles. Sections i, ii and in, 1919-20. HAI. Stationery Office. 4/3 the set. [A 300]
The sections are in the Port Erin Marine Biol. Station library, and are open to inspection. They give the monthly normals for all stations for the 35-year period 1881-1915.

The following values observed at Port Erin daily ,vithout interruption since about 1900, are kept there, but are not published. They are open to inspection at Port Erin
Air temp. at 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Sea temp. at 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Daily max. and min. air temp. Wind, strength and direction Visibility i All at 9 a.m.
Salinity of the sea and 4 p.m.
Barometric pressure ' G. M., T. (only since June 1926)
The 'monthly means' of sea and air temp. at Port Erin have been worked out for the 25-year period 1902-1927, and are published in the following paper :
