Gales overnight with one very impressive gust of 59knots, probably funnelled between houses, while windspeed in the village here maxed out at Beaufort 5: enough to be noisy but not extreme. Unusual but not unknown to have such an active Atlantic Storm in early August, and a reminder that autumn is not far away now.

It appears likely that windspeed (which was uncorrected previously) was seriously under-reading before the move to the new software. Readings will be more representative of wider conditions from August 2019 and should not be directly compared with readings before then. Windspeed should now more accurately reflect the "general" wind across the area, rather than the wind in the sheltered garden. There is now good general agreement between the wind being recorded by the weather station and the beaufort descriptions.

Brutally hot and humid today. There were a couple of short, sharp showers that did not cool things down at all.
