Gay Street Weather was set up at the beginning of 2014 to record the weather in the hamlet of Gay Street between the villages of Nutbourne and West Chiltington in West Sussex, UK.

 

The primary weather station is a Davis Vantage Pro2 Plus (with UV and solar radiation sensors) set up on 14 August 2016 in a meadow adjacent to my house (pictured left) and updates to the Internet 24/7.  It has the Daytime Fan-assisted Radiation Shield kit installed to help reduce the effects of daytime radiation and increase the accuracy of the temperature and humidity readings.  The unit is installed five feet above ground on a seven feet mast with the anenometer at the top, eight feet above ground (close-up pictured right).

 

The secondary station is the Fine-Offset WH3080  set up on 7 January 2014, also in the meadow, between the Davis station and my house. The sensors and anenometer are on a five feet mast (pictured top far right) and the rainfall gauge on the ground (pictured below far right).

 

Cumulus software is used with a wind speed multiplier of 1.316 to equate readings to the 10 metres high standard, and barometric pressure readings are adjusted to sea level.

Average Weather for Gay Street

Gay Street Weather

1. Dewpoint is the temperature at which condensation occurs and is dependent upon the humidity and pressure of the air.  Calculating the exact value of the dew point is important when predicting frost or fog.

Barometric pressure is adjusted for sea level.

4. Wind speed is based on a ten-minute average.

5. Wind run is a measurement of how much wind has passed a given point in a period of time.  A wind blowing at 3mph for an entire hour would give a wind run of three miles.

6. The sun shone (was fully out) at least once during the day.

7. Rainfall of 1mm (0.04 inch) or more during the day, as defined by the UK Meterological Office  (to compare with the Average Weather tables below).

8. Any amount of rainfall during the day.

 

9. The minimum temperature was 32°F (0°C) or below at sometime during the day.

 

10. The temperature was 32°F (0°C) or below for all of the day.

 

11. Snow laying on the ground at 0900 local time.
