Welcome to Askernish weather station in the Isle of South Uist, Outer Hebrides, Scotland!
The weather station in use here is the Davis Vantage Pro2.
The meteorological day used at this station ends at 0900 GMT.
One word weather:
It is with great regret that we have to announce the closure of Askernish Weather Station. The continual costs of having to replace malfunctioning equipment has become prohibitive.
We used the Davis Vantage Pro 2 weather station because of it's reputation, not only as accurate equipment but also because of it's reliability and robustness. Over the last six years we have had 3 anemometers, 1 replacement main circuit board and 1 replacement temperature sensor. As of today (25th July 2016) our current rain guage, anemometer and temperature sensor are all malfunctioning yet again. We rather think Davis's claims about robustness and reliability have been found wanting!
This website and the historical data will be left in place for the forseeable future.
