Summary of last 24 hours to 6 pm on Thursday 17th April 2014

The sun came out for a time after last night's report to give us a fine evening but today dawned cloudy and breezy, remaining so through much of the day with a north-westerly wind that often gusted to over 20 mph. With the temperature remaining resolutely in single figures other than brief bursts to 100C this afternoon, it has felt distinctly chilly. The wind has died away slightly over the last couple of hours and the cloud cover has both lifted and broken to leave us, just like yesterday, with a fine and sunny end to the day. We finished up with nearly 9 kWh of electricity generation by the solar PVs yesterday but might just make 6 kWh today before the sun sets. A rather better day is forecast for tomorrow with a light wind easing through the day, no cloud, no rain, extensive bright sunshine (high sunburn potential though!) and superb visibility. Much the same is expected For Saturday though cloud may develop over the Pennines at times. (See forecast links above and at bottom of page)
