Where Measured MET

Temperature is measured by a thermometer located in a box, called a Stevenson's screen, which has louvred slats to allow the outside air in but keep the thermometer out of direct sunlight. It is 1.2m above the surface. Do not get this confused with where wind is measured, which is by an anemometer 10m above the surface.
