The Malham Webcam weather station is situated quite close to Malham Beck (the stream running through the village) and is near to some trees. This is not an ideal location, and the data produced is affected by this location.

The weather sensors are not calibrated and readings may drift slightly over time. The overnight temperature readings are moderated by warmth from the stream and often read higher than would be expected. The humidity sensor is frequently "stuck" at 100% and is often unreliable. The light sensor is not measuring the overhead light, but the light levels on the solar panels that power the weather station (it may read lower if it hasn't been cleaned for a while).

The data is provided "as is" with no warranty for its accuracy or validity.
