Weather Station Maintenance

I have to do some much needed maintenance to the weather station hardware and server system, starting today.  The web page updates will be interrupted a few times for an hour or two at a time, between now (Thursday 9th) and Sunday 12th.

Weather Forecast: 6 – 8 August 2012

Updated (Monday 6 August 19:30):  Weather prediction graphs (Monday evening) are still indicating the same picture for the days to come!   The graphs also indicate that we can expect some rain on the highveld.  Will be very interesting to see how these forecasts turn out!

–Original Post

Weather outlook for the coming week (6 – 8 August) – looks like we can expect a very cold Tuesday!  The WXC forecast indicated -3 deg C for Tuesday and -4 deg C Wednesday morning.  Met.no (which is usually more conservative) indicates closer to 0 deg C morning temperatures.
