Wind and UV readings will be sporadic today, as some work is undertaken on the weather station's mast-mounted instruments.

After a number of rain gauge failures on the existing weather station, the decision was taken to replace the core weather station with a more robust and reliable unit.

The component of the website which lists and tweets the Met Office's weather warnings, has been completely re-written, to improve notifications.

A very unpleasant, intermittent 10-second delay in loading the site's home page has now been resolved.

We are currently investigating an issue with poor website performance since early Saturday morning.
