      Daily London weather descriptions
      http://www.pepysdiary.com/about/archive/2011/11/12/13067.php

      I’ve just added another little piece of period data to the sidebar, which you’ll see on all diary entries from 11 November 1668 onwards: A brief description of the day’s weather, taken from John Gadbury’s London Weather Diary. That particular day, for example, was described as “Great winds and rain at night”.

      These descriptions are taken from Keith J Tinkler’s formidable Daily Weather page which has lots more historical data on it: http://web.mac.com/keithjtinkler/Weatherbytheday/DailyWeather.html

      Unfortunately Gadbury only began his diary a little while before Pepys finished his, but it should add some colour to the remaining months.
