Weather Report from Portinscale, near Keswick, Cumbria


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

Summary for Thursday 23rd June 2016

A fine evening with widely scattered clouds and slightly cooler than recently with a low of 11.70C, the day that followed much the same - with sunshine of course! Well broken to scattered cloud, warm sunshine with the temperature above 200C from late morning and topping out at 22.40C, a light wind and very good visibility, the solar PVs benefiting to the tune of near 13 kWh of electricity generation so far. The weather doesn't get much better than this! Make the best of what's left of the day because it's all change tomorrow: patchy rain in the morning turning to heavy rain in the afternoon accompanied by thunder - that's in the north: the southern, western and central fells will be substantially dry. Sunshine will be intermittent. (Forecast links at bottom of page)
