Bramblemet Weather Reports

Bramblemet is a comprehensive weather information system, recording weather conditions in the Central Solent, both in real-time and historically.

Weather reports from Bramble Bank

Bramblemet weather reports are particularly useful since the information is derived from instrumentation which is not shore-based, but is on the Bramble Pile ( 50° 47'. 41N, 1° 17'.15W ) roughly equidistant from Cowes, Calshot and Hill Head.

The Bramblemet website is updated every minute from the data collection site at the Bramble Bank and then by radio link to the VTS building at Dockhead, Eastern Docks, Southampton. Every five minutes the sensors data is transferred from the Hydrographer of ABP Southampton to the CSG control computer at the RNLI Station, Hayling Island. The latest sensor data is then processed to create all the reports, graphics and archives. These outputs are then transferred to the Bramblemet website.
