Weather Report from Portinscale, near Keswick, Cumbria


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

Summary for Saturday 30th July 2016

We had a glorious evening yesterday, the clouds clearing away apart from a few wisps above the distant fells and not a breath of wind. By the time the sun had disappeared behind the fells, the solar PVs had generated 15.4 kWh of electricity - on only 3 days this year have they generated more. Today by contrast has been rather cloudier but still with some good sunny spells along with good visibility, the solar PVs managing over 8 kWh of generation so far. It has also been dry, apart from a few minutes of very light drizzle midmorning, too little to register on the gauge, but it has been distinctly cooler than yesterday, typically in the mid teens, rising to 18.20C late afternoon in a mainly light wind. Much the same for tomorrow with isolated showers possible in the morning, drier in the afternoon with intermittent sunshine. (Forecast links at bottom of page)
