WYENOT NEWS HQ STATISTICAL WEATHER CHARTS
Charts for week commencing 00.00h GMT 30th March 2009

These charts show the results from an automatic weather station, located at Wyenot News HQ, specifically: Latitude: 51 55' 15.5" North - Longitude: 002 34' 40.9" West.

Wind speeds should be accurate. The red line is average wind speed. The green line is gust speed. The gauge is located above our roof at TV aerial hight.

Rainfall: Measurements should be fairly accurate. Straight line = no rain during that period. The device is reset to zero every Sunday, as near as possible to midnight GMT.

Air Pressure: The barometer is also accurate and there are two pressure readings. The red line is the actual reading at 'Wyenot News'. We are however located 232 feet above sea level and air pressure drops 1 hPa per 30 feet asl. The green reading should be the sea level reading.

Temperature: Our thermometer needs re-siting as, although it is already protected from direct sunlight by a white reflective shroud, it still seems to be affected and read a degree or two high compared to the weather station during brief periods of direct sunlight, to which that shield is subjected. I will try to relocate the sensor as soon as I can get hold of a proper housing.

Wind Chill: This is a calculation of how hot or cold it felt, taking the wind into consideration.

Please do not take these readings as Gospel. Although we are the opposite side of town to Ross Weather Station, the readings seem to compare favourably but I am no weather expert!
