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 busy building up my knowledge of 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, from time to time, in the Blog I shall discuss weather conditions further afield and will probably also discuss other aspects of meteorology that catch my interest.
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.
In a section titled “Images of the Day” I shall post interesting images relating to the weather in any part of the world. This section is updated on as many days as I can manage, usually in the evening.
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.
