See what you can discover.

Good enough photo found, see comments confirming Stevenson screen location but not whether the base is on concrete.

WMO03385, Donna Nook No. 2

53 28 29N 00 09 10E
Altitude 8 metres

Estimated Class 5. Location of Stevenson screen appears to be on concrete a few feet northside of control tower in deep shadow.

Evidence toward this by chance today, the BBC region weather report:-


Image from screen, web page

UHI, extreme local base, distance, none.

Site is RAF, NATO, Coastguard, Wildlife, very confused.

As a special site for local operational purpose there isn’t a problem, provided the data is either restricted or appropriately very clearly marked.

    In fact it is. When the BBC image is blown up to 400% the Stevenson Screen is clear to see.

    It is in the North West corner of the control tower compound.

    Well done, confirms my guess. (top of two insruments is good enough)
