    Yesterday’s Highest Daily Temp Range only managed to break the March monthly record with 18.5C. The All Time Record is 19.2C set 9 Sept 2012

    Today two records broken for March monthly records. Highest Temp 25.4C and Highest Apparent Temp 23.8c.

    As I have a small urban garden this may have caused an over reading, so at 4.00pm I checked the local METAR's. METAR range of temps 24 to 25C, VP2 reading 24.2C.

    20.7 °C range for me which was a new April record, but does not beat my all time 21.3 °C set in March 2012.

    I had an all-time temperature range record go on Saturday, 16.5 °C. CMX didn't treat it as a new record though, the light didn't flash to acknowledge it as a record. Could it be a bug?

    Mapantz,

    Should be easy enough to check. What is your existing all-time record?
    Cheers,
    Ray, Cheshire.

    Hi Ray

    https://www.warehamwx.co.uk/cumulus/record.htm

    What I mean is, it shows the new record within the all-time records page, but the light on my main page didn't flash to say a record had broken.

    MX only sets <#newrecord> for a record on the current day (as a hack because there's currently no way to unset it manually).

    Understood. I thought it hadn't set the all-time record but you confirmed it did. Steve has now explained the MX situation.

    ah - so the maximum daily range record will only update at the rollover time? Hence no light?

    edit: I'm pretty sure when I broke my minimum daily range record back in December, the light was flashing? :shock:

    Possibly something to do with the actual timestamp that it records for the record (even though it applies to the whole day).

    This station equalled the highest May temp yesterday at 28.6°C. That record was set back in 2010.

    I was pretty confident it was going to be broken today with clear skies forecast all day. Sadly not. Just 28.2°C was today's high.

    Still very impressive given summer doesn't start until next Thursday. :D

    Not an all time record as such, but I have just recorded a 43mph gust, 22mph windspeed. I have looked at my Wunderground data going back to 2011, and that's the highest for June. The highest I can remember since having a station, to be fair. :shock:

    Two Monthly records just broken. Highest gust of 39mph for June and highest 10-minute average.

    LATER: Gust of 41mph later in the afternoon.
