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

Summary for Sunday 26th February 2017

Another wet and windy day, the rain somewhat less than yesterday (15.2 mm compared to 25.2 mm) not having started until 8 am, of less intensity and dying out soon after 4 pm, the latter rather greater (peak gust 54 mph compared to 45 mph) though the average has probably been similar. Comparable temperatures as well, minima and maxima of 6.20C and 5.90C, 10.30C and 9.80C for Saturday and Sunday respectively. It has been duller than yesterday, the solar PVs generating a mere 0.2 kWh, not that yesterday's 0.7 was much to shout about! A rather lighter wind is forecast for tomorrow and some bright sunshine is also expected, but there will also be snow and hail showers, rain below 300 metres (1000 feet), at times frequent and heavy, and lasting an hour or more. It will become colder again with subzero temperatures on the high fells. (Links to forecasting sites at bottom of the page)
