Weather Report from Portinscale, near Keswick, Cumbria


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

Summary for Sunday 25th September 2016

A day of mixed fortunes, weather wise. At times sunny, at others cloudy, at times dry, at others damp, but the overriding one has been a distinctly autumnal chill. The sunshine, mainly concentrated early in the early afternoon, resulted in just 5 kWh of electricity generation, the dampness a paltry 3.6 mm and only half of that during daylight hours and nearly all late afternoon, adding to the 4 mm that fell last evening. The highest temperature was 18.10C at 8 o'clock yesterday evening: now (at 6 pm) it is 12.10C and has been between 130C and 14.60C since dawn and just 10.60C in the late afternoon rain an hour ago, but just 8.60C with wind-chill. That has been a not insignificant feature at times today with the wind a moderate to fresh broadly southerly with gusts to 30 mph. Another mainly cloud day is forecast for tomorrow, starting dry but persistent rain is expected from late morning, possibly setting in for a few hours in some places. Visibility will be very good, poor in rain, and sunshine restricted to the early morning. It will be cool again in moderate south the south-westerly wind. (Forecast links at bottom of page)
