Summary of the last 24 hours to 6 pm on Wednesday 14th October 2015

Light cloud which spread in early last evening had mostly cleared by the time we went to bed and had done so completely, bar a few light wisps, by the time we got up this morning. In the meantime, the temperature had fallen down to 1.80C at dawn and it wasn't until late in the morning that it reached double figures. But the sun, shining from a cloudless sky, was warm on our backs - and fronts if we faced it - even at 500 plus metres (1650 feet) "back o'Skiddaw": cool in the shade though but the high of 150C mid-afternoon is not bad for the time of year. The wind has been barely noticeable again. Solar radiation fell briefly late in the morning, though not where we were, but rather more complete high cloud began to spread in during the second half of the afternoon, limiting total sunshine hours to just under 8 hours and output from the solar PVs to just over 8 kWh. A bit more cloud is forecast for tomorrow and light rain is expected over the Pennines, but there will be sunshine in the west and south of the Park along with a fresher wind.
