Beautiful wild garlic flowers amongst the bluebells. The ramsons prefer the damper spots.

Unsettled end to the month


April is ending on an unsettled note as Atlantic fronts
either sweep across or affect the county on Fri, Sat & Sun.
 

26 Apr 2018

 

HAS APRIL REALLY BEEN DISAPPOINTING?
The figures don't bear this out.

Estimates are included for this year's figures
April 2017 was indeed very dry, but was followed by a wet May.

Staplefield Anorak is a privately-run, not-for-profit website.

Occasional attempts are made to forecast the weather for certain local events. It should be noted that my only qualification for this is a slightly unhealthy interest in the weather, and in rain in particular.

Current weather is reported every 5 minutes from an automatic Davis Weatherstation in my garden in Staplefield. It is not sited very scientifically and is sheltered from the west & northwest, which leads to wind reports which may not represent those experienced elsewhere in the village. The site is approximately 300ft (91m) above sea level.
Other readings should be fairly accurate, although they should not be relied on for anything more than general interest. UV readings are definitely not accurate and should be ignored.

Other pages on the website depict recent weather graphically and another, the level of water in our well (which may give some indication of groundwater levels). There is a photographs page which is updated every few days. I either post pictures of the village or of wildlife and nature around the village. I am happy to post any information that may be of local interest.

I always welcome feedback, so please use the contact me link if you would like anything added, or removed, from the site, or to send in any
photograph that you think suitable for publication. I also welcome general comments, praise, quotes and weather-related jokes, funny or not.
