Re: No named storm but

The wettest day here since 7th July 2012 with 30·9 mm in the gauge.

Wind gusted to a maximum of 24 knots, so nothing too bad although some twigs and small branches down.

Barometer fell to 982·9 mb at 0924 UTC.

Re: Soil Thermometers

I've used a "normal" thermometer with the bulb encased in wax to retain the temperature as its read, and (like Michael has done) used a plastic piece of pipe hammered into the ground.

The thermometer is attached to a length of string and capped off with a old bottle top.
