High time-resolution data is available from the majority of Automatic Met Office Observing stations through the Meteorological Monitoring System (MMS) - data being available at 1-min intervals. On 9/10 February 2015 interesting, very large, short-period fluctuations in temperature and wind were observed at the mountain site of Great Dun Fell in Cumbria. The reasons for these fluctuations are examined in conjunction with available upper air soundings, and a number of possible causes are put forward.
