August 3rd

Hi All, Bit of a quicky blog this week as time is short today for me. Friday proved to be the scorcher that they forecast with temperatures close to the mid-thirties (higher where concrete pushed the temperature up further like Heathrow) and some pretty challenging E.T figures to match. On the Davis weather stations I am monitoring, the highest E.T came in at 6.82 mm for the day with a peak E.T loss of 0.76 mm per hour occurring at 2:00 p.m. The E.T though continued right into the evening with the wind and heat not dropping off to past 19:00 p.m. It was a challenging day and I can’t imagine the job superintendents in the States have to do
