Summary of last 24 hours to 6 pm Saturday 30th August 2014

There was just a trace of rain recorded last night but since then it has been dry if cloudy. The cloud cover though has broken at times, especially so during the afternoon, with some good sunny spells developing. Cloud base has been lower than recently, typically below the 900 metres (3000 feet) mark, and visibility has not been as good either: the solar PVs generation today amounts to just over 7 kWh so far, not bad under the circumstances. A little cool for the time of year during the morning only rising to 150C from midday to mid-afternoon with a fresh NW breeze but a pleasant 180C to 190C by late afternoon as the sun came out in earnest once again. Some drizzly showers are possible at first tomorrow but these will clear, the cloud base lifting above the fells and clearing away to leave a fine afternoon with extensive sunshine.
