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.

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.

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!

Weather Stats: Sun 5th to Sat 11th Jan

Our Weatherman in the Village is reassuring about the prospect of snow, but warns of more rain:

Don’t be fooled by the settled weather today (Sunday) as there’s another Atlantic depression and front sweeping in from the west to bring more wet and windy weather later today and tonight. The coming week will be punctuated by more of the same – wet, windy and relatively mild. At least we’re not battling the snow!

Northern Lights over Parwich tonight?

A number of news reports today have suggested that tonight (Thursday) could be our best chance in years to see the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights. It is thought that the best time for viewing will probably be between midnight and 3am, and the Met Office’s current cloud cover forecast bodes well for our area.

If we do strike it lucky, any photo or video evidence would be greatly appreciated!

For more info, read the news reports in The Guardian / The Independent / The Telegraph.

For more alerts as the night progresses, Lancaster University’s AuroraWatch project has a regularly updated Facebook page, Twitter feed and website.

Our weatherman says:

Happy wet New Year! The past week seems to have been very wet, and the ground is certainly waterlogged. Looks like another low pressure system will be tracking to the north, bringing more rain later today (Sunday), but hopefully the coming week will not be quite as bad as last.

Weekly Weather Stats: December 15th to 21st

20131222-120024.jpg

Our weatherman says:

We’ve turned the corner, and the lights are now getting lighter, thank goodness – next stop Wakes!

After a pretty wet and miserable mid-winter week last week, the forecast is for lower temperatures with blustery conditions for the coming Christmas week. Indeed, the temperatures may well be low enough for some of the showers to fall as sleet or wet snow – so we might just get some white stuff on Christmas Day – with a better chance over the tops outside the village. Ho ho ho…..!

Our weatherman says:

Relatively mild and changeable weather is forecast for the coming period. None of the white stuff on the horizon, so the odds for a white Christmas are getting longer…

Our Weatherman says:

No extraordinary weather on the horizon. Probably more of the same, with the dry spell looking like continuing. Temperatures near normal for the time of year, but no hard overnight frosts are forecast yet.
