Delicious, disgusting, poisonous, revolting. People tend to love or hate fungus.

Autumnal

Now that autumn has well and truly arrived we can look to
the west for our weather as Atlantic depressions and
'ex-hurricanes' dominate our weather.
These bring the windy, mild and wet conditions that we
tend to associate with this time of year.

NORMAL SERVICE RESUMED
After the heady highs of July & August wet September brought
a return to more normal temperatures.
The max temp (23.9c on the 12th) is very much mid-range, the average
temp of 14.3c was just below the average mothly temp of 14.5c
and you can see from the red line that the chilly night of the 28/29th
was one of the coldest on my records.

Disappointing September, or Rainfall Relief

Temperatures in September disappointed, the month being fractionally
chiller than average. September is a 'shoulder month' when the weather is changing from summer warmth to autumn cool. This is reflected in the jagged red line on the graph below. Sometimes the month is an extension of summer and in other years there is a noticeable cooling off. This was accentuated by the welcome rainfall which has watered gardens and fields but done little to end the year's drought.

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.
