About the Weather Station
The airfield uses a Davis Vantage Pro 2 weather station with Weather Display and Weather display Live software.
Using this page, you can get a Henstridge ‘Actual’ at any time, but this is a guide only, and must be supplemented by weather from approved sources for your flight planning. Please check the date and time of the last observation.
The page shows you our weather Centre readings, and gives you wind speed, direction and maximum gusts. All these readings are ten-minute averages updated every few seconds. Pressures shown represent the QNH.
The positioning of the anemometer leaves a little to be desired but it will not be corrected until we move into our new clubhouse. The main position error is that for southerly winds between 160 & 200 approx, the speed will under read. Add perhaps 5-8 kts for winds from this direction.
