1 – About this site
This site is maintained by Norman Lynagh. I am a Chartered Meteorologist with a career background in weather forecasting. These days I work primarily as an Expert Witness and as a Consultant to the Marine and Offshore industries. I have lived in Tideswell in the Derbyshire Peak District since 2009 and I am enjoying the fascinating meteorology of this part of the country which is about 300 metres above sea level. This site is primarily concerned with the local meteorology but, when appropriate, in the Blog I shall discuss weather conditions further afield and will also discuss other aspects of meteorology that that happen to be newsworthy. My interest in climate change is increasing rapidly as I think it is by far the biggest problem that humanity faces today.
My current thoughts about weather in and around Tideswell and the Peak District will be found in the The Blog. I update this on as many days as I can manage, mostly in the evenings and more frequently during periods of interesting or severe weather.
Observations of the actual weather in Tideswell are posted several time per day on most days. These can be found via the “Tideswell Weather Observations” page. Maps showing details of the weather over a wider area are produced irregularly, especially when there is ‘interesting’ weather, and are found via the “Weather across the region” page.
Real-time data is uploaded from my automatic weather station to the Weather Underground every 5 minutes. The latest data can be seen here. Historical data can also be found at the same page.
As well as the detail about Tideswell weather the site will also contain links to external sites providing information about Peak District weather. I shall also post photographs from time to time. The site will be in a state of intermittent evolution so, if the content interests you, please visit regularly to see what new stuff has been added.
In addition to my interest in the local weather I also run a business providing weather consultancy and weather forecasting services. The business has a worldwide capability.
