Enough said this is my question today: I've been looking for the last few days at the solar radiation chart. As I would expect there is a correlation between the solar energy levels and the sun path for the date. However, it appears there is always a dip around midday at the top of the graph. What is the reason for that?
Is it possible it has to do with the way the station is set? Is it there a shade of some sort crossing over the solar sensor or a tree shading it?
Thank again to Paul for the great work he puts on the website and the forum You have my appreciation.
First off thank you for joining up and for your first post.
Sadly the dip in the graph on my weather website is due to the positioning of the weather station.
When I installed it a few years ago in January and didn't think that the large gum-tree 30m away would make shade about this time of year. From October to approximately March it doesn't cast any shade. I keep meaning to move it and will find a new location for it tomorrow.
