Our Weatherman in the Village says:

Following on from a long relatively dry spell, Saturday night brought some much needed rain for the gardens. The week ahead looks like there isn’t much persistent rain on the horizon, but it will feel a little cooler and fresher. There is some showery weather forecast toward the end of the week.

weather22Jun14

Our Weatherman in the Village says:

High pressure continues to dominate, giving us a beautiful day for Open Gardens, and a fine start to the week. It looks like the weather could be breaking down toward the end of the week though – but at this stage it’s pretty much guesswork. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for a fine Wakes!

Our Weatherman in the Village says:

The week ahead looks like a good one for silaging as high pressure is forecast to dominate for some days ahead. There may be variable amounts of cloud, but little or no precipitation looks likely.

Our Weatherman in the Village says:

We’ve been lucky this weekend with a dry slot in between unsettled weather patterns. Sadly Monday will see a return of damp and cool conditions for the rest of the week ahead.

Our Weatherman in the Village says:

We don’t need a rain gauge to know it’s wet – just as well!

Sadly, it doesn’t look like getting much better with low pressure dominating this week. So, more of the same in prospect for the coming period, with no obvious let up in the showery conditions.

More showery weather on the cards for the next few days (but we still can’t measure how much rain!). Looks like it might get a bit more settled towards the end of the week though. Fingers crossed.

Our Weatherman-in-the-Village says:

Apologies for the lack of rain data – my rain gauge has given up, and awaits repair.

After a lovely Bank Holiday weekend, the weather looks a little more changeable for the coming working week with more sunshine and showers on the cards. Good growing weather!

A misty start

Though the weekend has started in rain and mist, let’s hope the weather picks up for tomorrow’s St. George’s celebrations.

Our Weatherman-in-the-Village says:

Looks like we will avoid the worst of the rain locally during what’s left of the Easter weekend, but the coming week looks a bit wetter than recently with changeable conditions persisting through the working week ahead.

Our Weatherman-in-the-Village says:

Still having problems with the rain gauge. It looks like it was working OK on Monday, but I know we had some rain yesterday which wasn’t recorded. I think it’s the reed switch in the gauge so it might be out of action for a while. Let’s see.

The week ahead looks pretty good until Thursday or so, but then I always feel that in the UK we have 4 days or so where predictions are reasonably accurate – beyond that is “educated” guesswork. With our country being close to the Atlantic, the Gulf Stream, and the solid land mass of Central Europe, there are just too many variables to make long range weather forecasting anything other than statistical observations.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed for the Easter weekend – I have left the garden furniture under wraps until this weekend. Last year a week after I got them out we had a foot of snow!

Our Weatherman-in-the-Village says:

On inspecting the data for last week, it seems I might have a problem with the rainfall recording, so please treat rainfall data with suspicion. Hopefully I will get the opportunity to check it next weekend or over Easter.

The week ahead looks better after Monday which looks to be a bit wet (although you might not know how wet based on the above!!).

Our Weatherman-in-the-Village says:

Last week was definitely on the cool side as predicted, but we were rewarded with a lovely weekend, with temperatures nudging 17c. The week ahead looks better once Tuesday is out of the way.

Our Weatherman in the Village, says:

Just to remind us it’s still early in the year, the weather has turned a bit chillier this weekend (although not quite as extreme as this time last year!). The week in prospect looks likely to remain cooler, with some night frosts prospect.

Our Weatherman in the Village, says:

Spring has definitely sprung, and this week has been glorious – very dry and good temperatures. The early part of the coming week looks dry, with the possibility of wetter weather toward the end of the week.

No smoke without fire?

Though in this case the fire is some 92 million miles away.

Our Weatherman in the Village says:

There are definitely signs of early Spring in the air – curlews, noticeably lighter nights, lots of birdsong, and the temperatures are generally improving (see week averages). It was even a bit drier this week.

The unsettled weather pattern persists into the coming week, with rain or wintry showers never far away. Nothing too dramatic on the horizon though…….

Our Weatherman in the Village says:

Even more rain recorded than last week, but hopefully this week will be a little less stormy. Still unsettled with low pressure systems running through, but it looks like the storms will be a little less intense. Some dry days possible during the coming week. Phew!

Road conditions?

Watch out on the roads this evening.

I have just come back from Ashbourne (6.30pm) on the B5056, and there are a few branches on the road. It is perfectly passable, as long as you take care.

Another wet week recorded, but not quite as damp as recent. The coming week looks like more changeable weather coming our way, but temperatures dropping a little giving some icy patches and wintry showers over the tops.

Our Weatherman in the Village says:

The wet weather continued this week with nearly two inches of rain recorded. A brief respite looks likely Monday and Tuesday, but more wet and windy weather is forecast for the middle of the week.

Road conditions

Thank you Cheryl for the following:

Please take care if out and about on the roads tonight. Conditions are treacherous with puddles where there aren’t normally puddles and they take you by surprise.

Our weatherman says:

The past week was even wetter than the previous week, continuing the damp start to 2014. The good news is that we might see less rain in the coming week (not difficult). The bad news is that it will be colder!
