Backed by field measurements, this paper provides a practical look at the effect of weather conditions on noise levels in order to raise awareness of the importance of meteorology in noise measurements. This paper references the requirements for measuring meteorology in BS 4142:20141 and compares those requirements to legislation from other countries, focusing on the propagation of sound rather than spurious noise created at the microphone. Whether short- or long-term measurements are considered, variations due to weather can add considerably to measurement uncertainty and should not be overlooked.
