Weather summary for the week Monday 8th to Sunday 14th January 2018

The week started much the same as the last one finished - a frosty night (the only one of the week at -1.40C minimum) then a fine, dry and sunny day with a light wind and a daytime maximum of 4.70C. It became somewhat milder during the rest of t he week, peaking at 7.80C around the middle of the day on Wednesday, with no more overnight frosts. The week's mean temperature was 4.30C, mean minimum 2.60C and mean maximum 6.40C. It was also a very dry week, with just 2 wet days: Wednesday with just 1.2 mm overnight and Sunday with rain not arriving until well into the evening but spoiling the week with 8.6 mm of it! But it was also a reasonable week for the time of year, at least initially, for the solar PVs with 8.5 kWh of electricity generation, over 7 kWh of which was in the first 3 days of the week but the last 2 days only generated 0.1 kWh between them! The wind through the week was generally light, very light midweek, then slowly picking up towards the weekend with gusts in excess of 30 mph and a noticeable wind-chill. Wet and windy weather is forecast to start next week but it will then become rather colder with the prospect of some snow showers, hopefully not just on the high fells.
