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

Weather summary for the week Monday 30th July to Sunday 5th August 2018

Another 5 days of welcome rain though again of no great intensity - just what the garden needs - amounting to 19.2 mm in total and so slightly less than the previous week. Only on Monday did the rain arrive during daylight hours and it also become dry for the weekend. Temperatures have been a touch lower, both in absolute maximum at 24.10C and mean minimum+maximum at 17.30C, the week's minimum a couple of degrees higher at 11.90C. Daylight is becoming noticeably shorter now with sunset soon after 9 pm, sunshine hours markedly reduced, limiting solar photovoltaic output to 53.7 kWh for this week though they still managed 3 days, Thursday, Satuday and Sunday, in double figures. We're also having more cloudy days. But the warm and mainly sunny weather isn't over yet with next week predicted to be generally fine and dry and becoming warmer again towards the end of the week but we still need more rain though preferably overnight!
