Summary of last 24 hours to 6 pm Friday 19th September 2014

Although today has been fine and dry again, it has been just a shade cooler with a maximum of 200C and with a bit more cloud developing from midmorning onwards, even if this has been generally well broken. Nevertheless, the solar PVs have matched yesterday's 9 kWh though visibility has once again been hazy. A slight deterioration is forecast for tomorrow - we can't be greedy! - as a cold front moves slowly in from the north. Cloudy conditions will prevail until midday and even the chance of a shower or two, even a thunderstorm. The afternoon will be brighter with cloud lifting off the summits, the sun eventually appearing by later in the afternoon. The best of the weather will once again be over the Lakes, the Pennines more likely to hold onto cloud. (Forecast links above and at bottom of page)
