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

Weather summary for the week Monday 4th to Sunday 10th June 2018

Another generally good week with maximum daily temperatures over 200C on every day with a peak of 25.70C on Thursday. The mean minimum-maximum slightly down on the previous week at 17.00C but with average wind speed in low single figures, pleasant enough, even hot at times! Sunshine hours were 89.4 kWh, only a tad down on the year's record at 92.0 kWh of a couple week's ago, only Saturday's, at 9.1 kWh, failing to reach double figures. A couple of days with rain but with a total of 0.6 mm, there was no help to the vegetation though we were caught out, unprepared clothing-wise I had to admit, when a rather more substantial and cold shower hit us on Fleetwith Pike on Sunday around midday! Pressure has been on a generally downward trend through the week and though the forecast for the start of next week looks to follow the present pattern, there lurks in the western Atlantic a less clement weather system - very strong winds and potentially heavy rain: we need some of the latter, no so the former!
