Note: Following the 8th Congress of the World Meteorological Organization, from 1 January 1986 the term hectopascal (hPa) is preferred to the numerically identical millibar (mbar) for meteorological purposes. 1 hPa = 1mb


Up to 28th January 2014 this data was recorded using a wireless Davis Vantage Pro 1 with the datalogger and Weatherlink software. Following failure of that unit it has been replaced by a Davis Vantage Vue. Presentation to web also uses Dreamweaver 8 and customisation features of Weather Display and Weather Display Live and the VirtualVP utility. The ISS ( rain gauge / temperature and humidity sensor ) is attached to a 2m mast, facing south. It is sited above loose soil, 4m away from the house, Buildings obstruct much airflow from due S and from NE to E.

Automatic Weather Station History
28 July 2004: Wireless Davis Vantage Pro installed with passive radiation shield.
29 Oct 2004: Anemometer exposure slightly improved.
