Wanstead has a new automatic weather station to complement the one set up in November 2012.
The new AWS, situated in the grounds of Wanstead Golf Club, comes thanks to Friends of Wanstead Parklands. Data from the unit, which is sited very close to where Wanstead House once stood, will be used to help monitor the levels of the park’s lakes.
The sensor unit, 750m NNE of the weather station wansteadweather.co.uk on the Aldersbrook estate, is much better exposed and will hopefully offer more accurate wind and sunshine readings. It will also provide a chance to further investigate the area’s microclimate.
The station has already shown that the golf course is warmer on a radiative cooling night than the Aldersbrook Estate.
The AWS can be found at WeatherCloud https://app.weathercloud.net/d0507444306#profile
