Cloudy with occasional bright spells after drizzle on and off earlier on. The FARS fan decided to die in the Davis earlier, so that was replaced along with a new SHT31 temp/humidity sensor to replace the previous one before winter.

Currently 16.1C after a high in the early hours of 16.8C. 1.0mm of rain since midnight after 17.6mm yesterday.

Not as windy as expected with a high gust today of 32mph. Yesterday managed 42mph but nowhere near the 51mph I recorded last Friday.
