Turning Hotter

Slightly less settled as warm air is drawn in from the south
by a cold front coming down from the northwest
.
 

There just might, hopefully, be a heavy shower.

Let's hope that the fine weather
continues long enough
to give 'Tea on the Common'
dry &fine conditions.

At the moment the outlook for the
rest of the month is fine, although
the remnants of an Atlantic hurricane
will either bring us unsettled weather
or, more likely it will draw warmer
air up from the Continent.

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.
