Welcome to Sanday, in the Orkney Isles.

The weather station in use is the Davis Vantage Pro2, and these pages are updated every 5 minutes. The meteorological day used at this station ends at 10 am.

Davis VP2 Forecast: Mostly cloudy with little temperature change. Precipitation likely. Windy with possible wind shift to the W, NW, or N.

The temperature sensor has failed yet again. I will not be replacing it this time, as the station will be closing down in a few weeks

Update (20th July) Today's thunderstorm killed the Raspberry Pi which I was using for my weather station software. Given the temperature sensor problem and now this, the station is now officially closed. I know that a lot of local people rely on the weather station for various reasons, and so I can only apologise. Hopefully a replacement station will be set up somewhere on the island in the near future
