Broadstairs Weather Page

Please do not take important decisions based on information provided by this private weather station. It only provides a guide as to the weather conditions prevailing in Broadstairs.

The new weather station was installed on the 2nd April and is now reporting live. There may be a few teething troubles initially but hopefully not many. I have added the UV Index measured by the station and the lightning sensor data will appear if we get any thunderstorms, the lightning sensor will pick up anything within a 25 mile radius but as we are quite high and can see France (on a clear day) it may pickup strikes further out in the Channel. At present my solar/UV sensor is shaded by around 6PM or so which reduces the readings, I need to relocate it to a better position.
