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: A little cool and unsettled to Easter Day (5th), then becoming rather dry, warm and settled for a fortnight. Changing back to unsettled and rather cooler in the last week of the month.
TEMPERATURE: 0.35 °C above average monthly mean. Daytime temperatures were for the most part rather above the monthly average with only 2/3 days cool for the time of year. The nights were on the other hand somewhat cool throughout the month although there were no air frosts.
RAINFALL: 15.4 mm, 30% of average. Following a dry March, rainfall fell on 10 days of April but the durations were short and amounts were low. Most of the month's rain fell in the last week. It was not however especially dry and only 7th driest April in 31 years of records.
SUNSHINE: c. 178 hours, just above average. The first few days were not particularly sunny but the 8th to 23rd were very sunny for the time of year. Becoming rather more cloudy towards the end of the month. The estimated total at this site was some way below those of the nearest official UKMO stations, e.g. Charlwood, East Malling and Herstmonceux
