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

Weather summary for the week Monday 11th to Sunday 17th June 2018

It was inevitable that, after all the fine and sunny weather we've had over the last few weeks, there would be a payback and so it turned out. A generally rather cloudy and dull week with overall lower temperatures: a mean minimum-maximum of 14.30C and maximum of 21.80C; solar PV output of only 60.3 kWh and 5 days with rain amounting to 14.6 mm in total, not that that is a lot round here even for June. The real surprise though was the wind: average wind speed at 4.7 mph was low but the peak gust at 718 am on Thursday at 75 mph was by a significant margin the highest I've recorded in near 20 years! It was associated with barometric pressure falling to a low of 993 mb, that's 25 points lower than the high barely 24 hours earlier. It resulted in a lot of tree damage in the area and rather a lot of leaves in the pond which I'd only cleaned out over the previous couple of days! Fortunately, the tadpoles and other wildlife seemed to have survived OK. This less clement weather is forecast to continue over the next few days so more light rain and cooler temperatures are likely. But at least the lawn is looking rather better now!
