Monthly and annual weather reports

Listed below are some known online sources of monthly and annual weather summaries. These all contain statistical data, and some hold additional information in the form of statin or regional text notes.

If you know of any others, particularly for the European area, then I would be interested to learn of them.

I have accessed many of these items using a ppython script with avoids the need to download them repetitively using multiple 'point and click'. If you would like a zipped version of any of the collections then let me (rDOTbruggeATreading.ac.uk) know - I may have a zipfile already for you.
