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

Weather summary for the week Monday 4th December to Sunday 10th December 2017

A week of two distinct halves. The first was mild and cloudy with light rain on Monday on Tuesday, heavy rain overnight Tuesday to Wednesday, lighter later in the day, amounting to 32.6 mm, the wind rising over this period and though mainly light to moderate, winds gusted to well over 30 mph and peaking at 46 mph on the 7th, Wednesday. Although the temperature was down to just 0.30C at midnight Sunday/Monday, it rose thereafter during the first half of the week to a maximum of around 130C at midnight on the 6th/7th. But from then on the week took a distinctly wintry turn with the temperature falling into low single figures with daily maxima just over 20C but well below zero with wind-chill, subzero minima overnight on Saturday (-1.30C) and Sunday -5.60C by midnight, and it's clearly heading down even further for the start of next week. But this cold spell has brought a real benefit: the damp and muddy fields have become frozen sold so the dog does not need a cleanup after a walk! More importantly, it's also brought some fine and sunny days with barely a breath of wind, and more of the some for the early part of next week before milder but damp weather returns to spoil it all!
