The screen is on sloping land and is a few metres from shrubs; a 50m tall tree is about 40 metres away.

This station is non-compliant, with temperatures reported at Latest Weather Observations  but not used to adjust data at Acorn sites.

FAIL

Percentage of all sites non-compliant: 49.25%.

That’s it: I think I’ve finished. Next I’ll update the index.

    On that slope any minimum temperatures would be false ! all the cold air being heavier will fall down hill away from the screen.

    And maximum temperatures will also be falsified as well..
