Weather summary for the week Monday 12th to Sunday 18th March 2018

The temperature was on a slow but steady rise last week and this trend continued for the first 3 days of this week, peaking at 11.90C on Wednesday. But it went into a rather more rapid decline for the rest of the week, with Sunday's daytime maximum of just 3.40C, following on from the week's low point of -2.20C just after midnight on Sunday. Mean temperature for the week was 4.70C, mean minima and maxima of 1.70C and 7.80C. The wind at the beginning of the week was very light and variable in direction but in the second half saw it became much gustier and from a significantly cooler easterly point. But at least the rain kept away most of the week, only Thursday with any significant precipitation at 4.6 mm of a week's total of 5.4 mm. Light, dusty snow fell on Saturday and Sunday, and much of that in the valley, a mere 1 to 2 cm, had thawed before the days were over! Nothing special to report on the sunshine front with just 25.4 kWh of electricity generation by the solar PVs. (Links to forecasting sites at bottom of the page)
