Huntingfield Weather and Astronomical Data

Hello and welcome to my weatherpage. I’m not a weather forecaster but merely a weather observer. I use my own information gathered from my weather station which is a Davis Vantage Pro2. I also glean information from the Meteorological Office, the BBC weather centre, Channel 4 and Weatherquest. I never take any notice of weather forecasts or trends as posted in any newspaper as it tends to be historic and sensationalised in order to promote sales. Any opinion given by me is my assessment only and has no scientific basis whatsoever . I have been collecting weather data locally for around 30 years.

It must be remembered also that the UK is in a temperate climate zone and this being the case, the UK weather is notoriously difficult to forecast. There are many variations even locally let alone regionally and to give a one case fits all forecast is simply not possible. Whether the information gathered is accurate or not, any information gathered will only be for that location and at best will only give weather trends for that location and not precise figures unless of course you are kitted out with MET office standards equipment sited in the correct location and not influenced by any buidings, trees etc. Even temperatures shown by the temperature gauge in a car is purely a guide as it is also influenced by reflected heat from tarmac surfaces etc. but nevertheless very useful for temperatures approaching freezing point for obvious reasons.

I hope you find some interesting information here. There are a number of links to external weather sites, so have fun!
