The information is from US Ocean Stations, US ships stationed at fixed points in the Atlantic. This operator is at one of thirty receiving positions that are manned day and night to receive weather reports from all parts of the northern hemisphere. The Met Office is the UK's national weather monitoring and forecasting service. Weather ships were established during the Second World War, expanding into a global network that ended in 1985.
