Welcome to Harpford Weather. This site contains the latest and past weather data
from my Davis Vantage Pro 2 weather station located in the village of Harpford within
the Otter Valley, East Devon. This site has decent exposure, although with slight
sheltering of the anemometer from certain directions (see station details), and being
a valley floor location, experiences cooler minima than nearby hillsides and coastal
locations. Weather data spans from the station installation date in October 2007 to
the present. There is also a Photo Gallery and a ‘Links & Other’ page with various
info that doesn’t fit anywhere else.
I run this site as part of my interest in the
weather/climate and recording it, and share the data incase it is of use or interest
to people, local or further afield. I try to make sure the weather data is as accurate
as reasonably possible but it is worth noting that it is not ‘official’ data. The
station is currently set up with a tablet PC to reduce power usage while keeping
the data updating day and night. This station also reports to Weather Underground
Notable Events: The 20th June was the joint hottest day recorded by this station
so far with a maximum air temperature of 29.2°C, the same as the 13th July 2013.
