Weather Report from Portinscale, near Keswick, Cumbria


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

Summary for Thursday 22nd June 2017

The temperature fell steadily through the night to 160C at sunrise, 436 am, but it didn't stop there. That occurred 9 hours later at 134 pm when it fell to 14.60C. Not surprisingly, not only had it been another very muggy night but also a muggy morning with humidity above 80% until early afternoon, the morning dull with extensive cloud, hill fog and occasional minimal and unrecordable drizzle. It did become brighter in the early afternoon with occasional bursts of sunshine, but it wasn't until around 4 pm that the cloud cover lifted and became mainly scattered and the sun came out in earnest, the temperature then rising to the day's maximum of 190C and the solar panels sprung to life with 8 kWh of electricity generation. The less said about tomorrow though the better: extensive cloud with rain turning to drizzle and little sunshine - and the weekend looks not much better.
