The RPV bellows sensor is up to 105c. It was at 66.6c yesterday and has been steadily climbing all day. The containment drywell HVH sensor has also begun to climb and is at 45c up from 38.5c yesterday. The CRD housing is also staying elevated and is at 229c.
TEPCO has been flagging sensors as failed but these readings seem to indicate a pattern of some sort still going on in the reactor. The three sensors showing elevated temps are in distributed areas. The CRD being the bottom of the reactor vessel, the drywell HVH being in the lower bulb of containment and the RPV bellows being up by the reactor top cap.
