The total dataset size (all stations gzip'd) is around 17GB. If you require the whole dataset and download speeds or limits are an issue please contact us and we will investigate alternative solutions.

Currently there are two download alternatives. Either each station can be accessed individually, should you only need a small number of stations. Or groups of stations can be downloaded at tar.gz archives. The groupings have been done by WMO number, with approximately 400-600 stations per archive. Stations with WMO number starting with 7 have been split into 4 separate archives.

The station listing with IDs, names and location information is here.
