The meteorological station as an independent structural unit has been functioning at the Regional Research Station since 1927. On January 31, 1931, the meteorological station was transferred to the Bila Tserkva Experimental Breeding Station. At that time, the meteorological station was equipped in accordance with the requirements for a second-class agrometeorological station. Additionally, observations of soil moisture, winter crops, phenological and road weather observations were carried out. Telegrams were transmitted: Synoptic (daily at 7, 13 and 19 hours). Agrometeorological (ten-day and pentaday). Air telegrams every 3 hours from 7 to 22 hours. Road and weather telegrams. On June 5, 1933, the meteorological station began to serve the Southwestern Railway. From January 1, 1934, the weather station was involved in inter-district work, at that time it served 11 districts, with 34 precipitation stations.
