Summary of last 24 hours to 6 pm Wednesday 22nd October 2014

The wind fell away yesterday evening, the clouds cleared away and the stars came out, and though the wind was still at first today, the clouds had returned and the stars blocked out. Since then it's been overcast and dull with not even the slightest hint of sunshine (0.3 kWh from the solar PVs) but no more than occasional very light drizzle with just 0.5 mm recorded. The temperature has however gone into reverse over the last 24 hours, the low point of just 50C early last evening, rising steadily through the night to peak at 100C midmorning and a degree or so lower mid-afternoon. Visibility has been poor with low cloud and hill fog but at least the wind of yesterday has moved on with just a mainly light breeze at times today. A similar day is forecast for tomorrow though with rather more in the way of wind and though the north and east will be mainly dry, the southern and western fells are expected to experience intermittent drizzly rain.
