Yes this is a record breaking met station but here is spot of fun too.
I get to see the wierd and the beautiful, this is the nuts.
Taken from a dual carriageway, if you don’t like telephone poles dress them up, colour co-ordinated with a fancy hedge.
Not finished yet.
From the air… huh! And a clue.
This is most bizarre image of an AWS to date, as it turns out to do with peat workings complete with private tramway.
You are actually looking down unusually vertically as well as the sun throwing hard shadows, the posts are not posts but shadows.
Peatlands, Armagh, Northern Ireland
Holds record for hottest November day in Northern Ireland
November 18.6 °C Peatlands (Co. Armagh) 2 November 2007
Estimated Class 3, fails Class 2 on hedges within 30 metres, however shadow from trees if measured might relegate this site to Class 4 or Class 5.
UHI, assume very little.
This is a current active site.
The site exposure is poor, a microclimate. I also note the Stevenson screen is very close to a fence and posts.
The peat workings are nearby.
