The Lookout is 60 metres above sea level and so experiences stronger winds than encountered on the water. As a rule of thumb, at sea off Prawle Point you can expect the wind to be one Beaufort force less.

The cloudbase shown is only an estimate calculated from the temperature and the dewpoint. Do check our webcams.

The weather conditions at Prawle Point and many other NCI stations can be monitored using the WeatherLink app available from the App Store and Google Play.
