Placing you Weather Station on the Web
Most ISPs offer web space so you should have no difficulty uploading an active weather website, for all to see, but if not you can get Cumulus to upload your data to:
? PWS Personal Weather http://www.pwsweather.com/
? Weather Underground http://www.wunderground.com/
? Twitter twitter.com/
? The Met Office will be opening a special site for us to feed our data to later in the year http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/forms/weather_stations_form.html
