Harpford Weather

Welcome to Harpford Weather. This site contains the latest and past weather data from my Davis Vantage Pro 2 weather station located in the village of Harpford within the Otter Valley, East Devon. This site has decent exposure, although with slight sheltering of the anemometer from certain directions (see station details).

The station is currently set up with a tablet PC to reduce power usage while keeping the data updating day and night. Data is also uploaded to Weather Underground and ‘WOW
