Weather Report from Portinscale, near Keswick, Cumbria


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

Weather summary for the week Monday 6th to 12th August 2018

The local farmer's fields are looking lush with growing grass once again and though our lawn is recovering, there are still some bare patches with little grass despite the rain of the last couple of weeks. Total rainfall in the last week amounted to a healthy 32.2 mm, of which 15.4 mm fell on Friday 10th. Not a lot for round here even in August, but it turns out to be the wettest day since the 24th January when 17.8 mm fell, following 17.2 mm on the 3rd. Just for comparison, rainfall for that month was over 150 mm with 23 wet days! Along with the rain, the temperature has been falling as well to a minimum-maximum mean of 15.50C and a maximum of 22.70C on the 12th and only 3 days breaking into the 200C plus range, preceded by a minimum of 7.40C in the early hours of the 11th. Another week of generally broken cloud and reduced sunshine, the solar PVs limited to 56.9 kWh of electricity generation, only Thursday 9th in double figures with 14.3 kWh. It may still be Summer in the UK, meteorologically speaking, but it looks like were in for another disappointing week to follow with lowering temperatures and windier and wetter conditions.
