Weather in Evershot

A small village in Dorset


Home

All readings are in metric units. But the wind speeds are in mph until the end of June 2008 and, from July 2008, in knots (sea miles per hour). Times are in UTC, equivalent to GMT. The days follow the old British fashion of starting at 09:00 UTC, not midnight. Rainfall figures are now taken from a standard rain gauge instead of from the automatic weather station. For an explanation of this, please go to the 'Rain' page here.

The weather station is a Davis Vantage Pro 2, and the software is WeatherDisplay.

NB: The data on this website should not be relied on for important decisions. They are for personal interest only.

Latest: I decided at the end of 2013 that I had done enough recording of the Evershot weather over the years. So what remains here, apart from the past records, is the Met Office widget below. Since then, in August 2014, various faults on the weather station have forced me to abandon the Current Weather page.






The Met Office often refers to the four seasons of the year, and so I have taken my rainfall and temperature figures for the last few years and put them in two tables. Winter, according to the Met Office, runs from December (in the table the December of the previous year) to February, Spring from March to May, Summer from June to August and Autumn from September to November. Of course the weather itself does not always agree with the Met Office's classifications!
