Weather summary for the week Monday 14th to Sunday 20th May 2018

We have just been treated to what can only be described as a near perfect 7 days if you like being out and about in the Lake District. We've had bright sunshine every day, frequently largely cloud-free, the solar PVs have generated 90 kWh of electricity with double digits on all be 2 days and not far off on those two, temperatures rising into the high teens, occasionally low twenties and a gentle breeze. In other words, brilliant hill walking weather. Mean temperature for the week was 12.60C with a maximum of 20.80C on Sunday afternoon, minimum 3.60C on Monday and Thursday nights. As for rain, well that amounted to all of 0.6 mm in a gentles shower on Tuesday evening. A brilliant week and the forecast for this week is just as good with today (Monday) a continuation of last - over 10 kWh of electricity generation so far today as I write this at 6 pm.
