When Mrs cossack was a Met Office weather observer, the observations were done for the Met Office's benefit and aviation benefited as a bonus. Now the bare minimum observations are made because they are required by ATC and Nats was no longer willing to pay the Met Office what they were asking. Whether the Met Office still maintains as detailed records is doubtful.
