Graphs for June 2008

I'm a bit suspicious of this months pressure chart. Although the dramatic drops on pressure on the storm days was expected the unusual activity between the 19th and 23rd, with rapid drops then rises in pressure don't look right. I also think the general readings are to high and I may recalibrate the sensor next month.

Minimum Temperature this month 3.2 deg C but this was only one night. General night time temperature was 6 deg C or above. Maximum temperature was 27.9 deg C on a rare hot day, with some direct sun heating of the sensor I think.

A gentle start to the month with winds below 15mph on most days. Things began to pick up on the 18th when a forcast storm came through.The maximum speed recorded in the history file was only 32.6mph on the 22nd. This was however exceeded by a gust of 48.5mph also on the 22nd, which was recorded by the weatherstation but not saved in the history file as it didn't coincide with a 'data saving' period.

total rainfall of 6.24 inches this month. Most of which fell during 2 dramatic storms. In fact most of the 2.37 inches that fell on the 26th fell in the space of a couple of hours accompanied by some hail and thunder.
