Pitsford Hall weather station is an independent climatological station maintained by Pitsford School in the village of Pitsford, Northamptonshire. The station was established in 1998 and maintains a daily weather record using traditional weather instruments as well as a fully automated online automatic weather station. The station publishes daily and monthly weather reports which are circulated to a wide variety of users across the county and further afield.

An extensive archive of county weather records is held by the station which date back to 1880 and the station continues to receive weather records from a number of sites from across the county.

A small staff of fully trained Sixth Form students and local voluntary observers ensure that Pitsford Hall's daily weather record is maintained throughout the year.

The station enjoys the patronage of broadcast meteorologists Michael Fish MBE (now retired) and Alex Deakin. It is a corporate member of the Royal Meteorological Society.
