  1. I'm currently analysing weather records at a location in Yorkshire dating back to the the early 1970's.

    My query is regarding rainfall, should a day that only records 'trace' as rainfall be included in the  'number.of raindays' in a monthly total ?

    Thanks in anticipation.

  2. Sorry if this is the wrong forum but here goes......

    I need to purchase a moderate priced piece of equipment that will automatically measure daily rainfall and daily max and min temps.

    We have been recording these features on a daily basis since the early 1970's but due to the imminent closure of the site (power station) there will no longer be anybody available to carry out these daily tasks but there will be an office with PC's etc still manned Mon to Fri.

    Can anybody please help with any info.

    Thanks in advance

  3. We've been recording the weather at the UK's largest Ash Disposal site (the Big Hill alongside the M62 motorway at Junction 34 by Eggborough) since 1970.After trawling through nearly 50 years of records I have discovered that the driest spell (classed as a period with no measurable rainfall) occured between April 16th to May 9th in 1984 which was 24 days.

    At the moment, our last measurable rain was on June 18th this year which means that today was day 21 and if it stays dry until Friday we will break that record.

    (I did have a panic this afternoon as that weak cold front came through with some rain falling close by around 14.00hrs.)

    Looking at the charts for the rest of the week I'm now pretty confident that the record will go.

    Don't want to put a dampener on this truly remarkable spell but is that more than a hint of the Jet Stream waking up by next Sunday?
