Last nights weather started out as heavy rain followed by what looked like high winds and freezing temperatures. At around 6am, the wind was gusting around 25mph, and then suddenly stopped. The suspicion is that this was because the anemometer froze. When I looked out of the door at 6.30am I could see the directional vein moving, but the cups were not spinning. Seems like the unit thawed out by around 9.00am.
On the precipitation front it seems like the rain collector filled with snow that did not make it into the measurement cup until later in the day when melting occurred around 10.30am.
