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

Weather summary for the week Monday 9th to Sunday 15th October 2017

Changeable weather for the week again but Tuesday and Thursday were quite decent with a fair amount of sunshine, though solar PV output at 4.2 and 3.1 kWh respectively is a reflection of the shortening days and obstruction of sunshine early and late by neighbouring trees! The wind was generally light on those days, rainfall 2.4 mm and 3.2 mm and humidity falling to below 70%. Temperature were around average for the time of year, maximum around the mid-teens but rising during the later part of the week and peaking at 17.40C on Friday. The stand-out day of the week though was undoubtedly Wednesday. Rain from mid-afternoon then intermittently until late evening: 48.4 mm in total, along with a wind gusting as high as 53 mph. We had rain on every day of the week though only Friday hit double figures at 14.4 mm, the week's total amounting to 75 mm. The back end of the week may have been a few degrees milder than the earlier part but it was rather dull with just 2.3 kWh of electricity generation Friday to Sunday (a mere 0.4 kWh on Sunday) and 12.7 kWh for the week.
