The weather station has been upgraded to a Davis Vantage Pro2 FARS. It was run along side the old station for 1 week and proved to provide better and more reliable information. All measuring equipment is now positioned to Met office reccomendations for setting up a citizen operated weather station, and the accuracy of information is improved. Due to the improved accuracy of the new station and the inacuracy of data from the old station, I took the decission to reset all records and delete history on 1st June 2012. Specifications and accuracy of the instruments will be put online very soon.
