This is a private automatic weather station (AWS) based in South East England, and reported data is neither official nor part of the UK Met Office network. This AWS does not conform to Met Office standards - which are far too stringent for most amateurs but the readings give a good indication of weather conditions in the "average" local back garden.

Information is provided for general interest only and use of any data is entirely at your own risk. Live weather updates are available most evenings and weekends.


WEATHER: The month was mainly settled during the first half, but often rather cool and very cloudy with northerly or easterly winds. In mid month it was wet and somtimes windy for a short spell before becoming mainly fine and settled again, and rather warm at times.
TEMPERATURE: Mean 1.6 °C above average. Temperatures during the first 10 days of May were on the low side, especially at night, under the influence of winds from the North Sea. Thereafter the days and nights were rather warmer than average especially after the 22nd.
RAINFALL: 62.2 mm, 134% of site average. The first half of May was rather dry with mainly light rain. The bulk of the month's rain fell on three days from the 17th - 19th, after which it turned drier again despite a thunderstorm on the night of the 29th. Thunder was heard on three days and hail was observed on one.
SUNSHINE: 154.0 hours, well below average. The first 19 days of May were very cloudy and often dull totalling under 60 hours sunshine. However the 20th - 27th was very sunny with over 70 hours of sunshine recorded.
