Summary of last 24 hours to 6 pm Wednesday 30th July 2014

A cloudy start again with drizzle turning to light rain for a time but insufficient to do more than dampen the lawn, certainly not enough to trouble the rain gauge, i.e. less than 0.3 mm (0.01 inch). Somewhat brighter by late morning but not until this afternoon did any breaks in the cloud cover appear to let the occasional burst of sunshine through. It has been rather breezier than of late (ignore the wind graph as the sensor has died again, permanently I think!), probably moderate with occasional fresh gusts, blowing the clouds along at a fair rate so any sunny spell have been brief. The solar PVs have struggled as a consequence, generating no more than 5 kWh of electricity so far. The temperature didn't rise much during the morning being in low single figures, but from mid-afternoon onwards it finally reached 180C to 190C, more typical for the time of year. The general situation for tomorrow is much the same as today but there is the threat of heavy showers in the afternoon. The north-east of the Park may benefit from some sunny intervals.
