Weather PC Failure

The Weather PC which records and graphs the data of the Chester Weather Station suffered a failure of the PSU at 5:08am.

We were able to source a replacement and get the Weather PC up and working at about 9:40am.

Weather data was not recorded between these times and the Skyscape Cam and Lightning Detector were also out of action.
