Not good weather generally, wind from south west, east will be warmest although this site is not particularly good on exposure, close tarmac and at this time of the year the field cover is suspect, might be ploughed. Only a site visit can discover.

Note: the highest hourly shown is 17.4C at 18 hrs, figure above is 18.5C. Brief break in cloud?

I note the site communication link is erratic, an all too common problem.
