Rating information for Drying

This rating is based on rainfall, wind speed and cloud-cover.
10A green rating between 7 and 10 indicates a good day for drying. There might be the odd shower, but strong winds and little cloud cover should assist in drying your washing.
5An orange rating between 4 and 6 indicates okay condition for drying with only moderate winds, showers, and some cloud cover.
1A red rating between 1 and 3 would suggest not to put your washing out to dry due to a good chance of rain, or little wind and no sun.
