Have a look around the net for a local AWS. Plenty of people have them. 

Just started looking for a weather station to replace my rather limited temperature/humidity remote sensor.

EllyTech mentioned a local AWS but that seems to be just the generic type of thing to look for as far as I can see with a quick search, anyone have a recommendation for specific models/makes to look at?

TIA

A couple of photos from here today. First one of a drift covering the road on yennadon down and the 2nd is the road to princetown coming up from dousland. I spotted 3 cars under snow and many more abandoned. The wind up here was brutal and snow is still being pushed about into drifts!!

Oregon Scientific WMR-88 I have had for a few years now and it’s been fantastic. They have upgraded them now as well since I got mine, so I’m considering an upgrade in the next 12 months. About £100-£150 depending where you buy from. You won’t go wrong with mendip weather, the customer service is 2nd to none. ?

We often see people say ‘it’ll only be a 2-3 day cold snap then a return to mild’. Well if they were all like this one would we be complaining?

Some good drifts about, apparently snow ploughs are up at princetown trying to clear the snow. Had to abandon the car again and climb snow drifts to get to horses. Loving it! Got my snow ride in yesterday though ? first time in 8 years!

Wow, i can't believe the difference. I drove back this morning with 8inches at home on the edge of Torbay. Worried i wouldn't get out of my road, the main roads where fine. As soon as i drove past the Ivybridge junction on the A38 it was like driving into spring, totally green. Now sat at my uni digs near derriford hospital would not know what all the fuss was about! Just a dusting here, can imagine what its like up there though as i normally take that route home if i want a scenic drive back! Truly epic couple of days at home though. A weekend that will live long in the memory.

Thank you David @Bring Back1962-63 but in the nicest possible way I hope we don't see you til next winter! Your posts have been informative and well written and I like the way you take time to explain some of the more technical stuff, but are never patronising nor dismissive of others.Thank you so much for sharing. 

Hovering around 0c here, but thaw is well and truly underway in the sunshine. Have loved this weather, but am ready for spring now. I need my sleep and my body is fed up of being bombarded with alcohol and sugar ????

There's water appearing everywhere now the ice and snow is melting. Could be a 'mare if the temps drop down fast enough this evening.

Beautiful Spring afternoon except for the bitter wind and 2.3c temperature lol. Washing out on airers on the patio as the line is above the snow covered but melting boggy lawn!

If anyone fancies one last hurrah of seeing falling snow they’d better get on a boat and get out into the channel. 

Guernsey been doing well today! :santa-emoji:
