Temperature data and relative humidity, dew point, apparent temperature and heat index is measured from the AWS sensor housed below the rain guage.  It is an un-aspirated housing, meaning that it does not have a fan.  Potentially on very still hot days this might cause some Tmax over-reading but, as these days are rare and the site is grassy with some shady trees in the environs, it was not seen as worthwhile fitting the aspirated version.

A sunshine recorder has also been fitted to the AWS set-up.
