@A-Former-User said in How can I access historical data?:
Such data does not really exist. At best you could use your local met office's logged rainfall observation stats. That historical information will exist and you can probably access it with one mouse-click from your toolbar once you find a link to it.
I get it locally with daily totals for the past three days, but it contains a link to monthly, seasonal and annual logs also. To access to them all I have to do is double-click on the radar's data icon at my radar site, and it gives the current logged data for the past three days in 30 minute blocks.
Which gives you this:
Which page contains another link to all the data for the prior months and years at the same and/or surrounding area's logged sites:
But rainfall is highly variable and what falls in the met office's gauge may not show up on your fields. But if you compare surrounding site totals you can tell how widespread or localized a rainfall event was and the implied average for your farm's area.
So check your national weather service website for links to the logged data for your local area.
But your best bet is to simplify all this by buying a capable digital weather station for your farm (and claim it as a business expense for tax deduction purposes). Such can auto-log rainfall data into a file internally that you can then download and look at in graphical form using the software that comes with the weather station.
Yes agreed Thanks for posting that out!
