Weather Report from Portinscale, near Keswick, Cumbria


"LIVE" WEATHER from our Davis Vantage Pro2 weather station. (5 minute update)

Summary for Friday 28th April 2017

A brief spell of light rain late evening added just 1.4 mm to the month's total, the day then starting well with broken cloud and some sunny spells, the temperature rising from around 50C (minimum 4.50C three hours after midnight) to double figures before 10 am and eventually to 13.50C less than two hours later. But from then on it was mainly on a downward trend as the sky clouded over, cutting out the sunshine and its warmth so that by 4 pm it was back down to just 100C. Cloud base has been well above the fell tops and visibility has been good but the solar PV output has inevitably been limited, the total so far identical to yesterday's at just 5 kWh. A mainly light southerly wind is forecast for tomorrow, increasing by evening, patchy cloud on the fells lifting off the tops during the morning with only isolated, brief showers, visibility will be excellent with patchy sunshine in the morning and temperatures slightly higher than today.
