OK, here's the links page. I've tried to keep the links a little unique and not just fall into the pattern of every other weather site on the net. The pages featured here are all easy to use and understand and my even be useful ! If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to Contact Us (link on the main menu)
The website of much-respected climatologist and weather historian
Philip Eden, containing a large range of statistical information
including analysis of how the current month is panning out (updated
frequently; often daily) and his alternative continuation of the
Manley CET series.
The British Weather
Trevor Harley's excellent website is a collection of records,
information from his own weather station, along with records of the
British weather since 1900. You can browse by month or by year, and
find a concise history of the British weather in any month since
the turn of the last century. Compulsive reading for the weather
Archived Weather Charts
This is an archive of the charts detailed above. It's a German
language site, but is very easy to use, you just choose the date of
the weather chart you want to see. You can't really go far wrong.
The charts go back as far as 27th January 1998, which is
conveniently close to the start of the records here.
Current Weather Conditions
You can find the current conditions at lots of different places
around the uk by checking out the Weather Underground site. This
not only gives Temp and Humidity, but you also get Dewpoint,
Windspeed and Direction, Pressure, Conditions, State of the sky,
etc. Brilliant !
Bonacina/O'Hara Winter Snow Analysis 1875 -
In an attempt to analyse each winter's snowfall events for the UK,
a man called L.C.W. Bonacina produced this list, which I have tried
to maintain and continue in recent years in similar style. See if
you remember correctly!
The British Isles Weather Diary
Roger Brugge's British Isles Weather Diary contains a daily summary
of UK weather data, with daily extremes of high temp, low temp,
wettest and sunniest places. It is normally updated a couple of
days in arrears and is archived back to 1999.
For those of you who happen to suffer from Hay Fever (and I include
myself amongst this unfortunate group) then a site you may be
interested in is this one at the Pollen Research Unit. There's all
the information about Pollen that you could ever wish to know (but
were afraid to ask) and you can also get a Pollen forecast, so you
know when to hide.
Environment Agency Flood
In view of the fact that Mother Nature seems to have decided that a
substantial percentage of the population should, in fact, live
underwater, we provide a link to this page. I know flooding isn't a
big problem in Ferryhill but it's still a nice page to have instant
BBC 5 day forecast for Ferryhill
The BBC 5 day forecast can be found here. It's not always the most
reliable, but i've included it anyway.
Road Conditions from the North
You know all those weather stations you see beside the roads? Well,
here's a map where you can take a look at the data they produce.
There's a Tow Law one too, so you can see how much colder it is up
