(81.8mm/hr) at 2340.
But that's provided a welcome bit of water for the fields & gardens.

As we start to take an interest in the weather for the Jubilee
Weekend we can look at the
rainfall and max temperature
for the recent Fetes.


It was 5 years ago that it last rained on a late May Bank
Holiday Monday.

But there have been 4 very wet
ones in the last 15 years.

Staplefield Anorak is a privately-run, not-for-profit website. (The previous website, .co.uk rather than .com has been hi-jacked and the content, some of it original, is nothing to do with me!)

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 anyphotograph that you think suitable for publication. I also welcome general comments, praise, quotes and weather-related jokes, funny or not.
