21 Apr 2021 – Sunshine

21st April 2021

Just a look back at the sunshine totals for yesterday (21 April) and a bit of a micro-analysis of each stations hourly totals through the day. Hopefully the hourly totals all add up to math those in the 06 UTC SYNOP. As you can see my SYNOP parser is misinterpreting reports from some stations for hourly sunshine, it might be me, or it could be a feature of the BufR to SYNOP encoder at OGIMET. Its a while since I wrote this and I’ve never revisited it to iron these bugs out. I always feel it’s a little unfair to have huts ‘one’ sunniest place when large parts of it were cloudless all day and produced as much as they possibly could horizons permitting.
