Station Status

Rainfall observations were incorrect on Thursday 24 August 2017 with readings too low, however the little rainfall occurring since then has been recorded correctly. The rain gauge is becoming faulty and will be closly monitored. A new webpage will be provided soon if rainfall measurements continue to be an issue. See here for more information.

Note that observations for Tuesday 25 July 2017 the accuracy of some readings were affected at times between approximately 7am and 2pm.

The weather station in use is the La Crosse WS 2306, and the data is measured at 5 minute intervals except when the weather station is running when it is measured each minute. These pages are usually updated twice daily usually at the start and end of most days. Note that these pages are not continually updated at a regular interval. However sometimes these pages do update regularly usually every 15 minutes especially during weekends and during notable weather. The meteorological day used at this station ends at midnight.

The temperature and humidity data collected is sited in an oversheltered spot out of sunlight. Therefore the recordings are inaccurate but mainly for overnight readings. However manual measurements are also made using an additional sensor and this has more accurate overnight readings. At the present time these recordings are not available on this site at present but will be in future. This data may be also available upon request.

There will be 1min 33s more daylight tomorrow

Short term forecast*: Precipitation at times, very unsettled
