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.
