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 conditions are anticyclonic until the very end of the month, giving rather dry and calm weather for almost the whole month, and rather warm during the first fortnight. The last week of April became a little more unsettled and cooler.
TEMPERATURE: Mean 0.6 °C above average. In a turnabout from the normal, the first half of April was rather warmer than the second half, with a rather cool last week of the month. With often clear skies, nights were just a little cooler than average with 1 air frost.
RAINFALL: 6.2 mm, 12% of site average. The third driest April in these site records. The first three weeks of April saw just one day with measurable rainfall. There was no snowfall observed in April and no thunder but light hail fell on one day
SUNSHINE: 165.7 hours, very close to average. The first fortnight of April was very sunny, especially the 5th - 9th but the conditions were often cloudy in the second half of the month. There were no days without any sunshine.
