Tideswell, Derbyshire – Sunday 22nd October 2017

1600z   27005kt 30km 7CuSc015 08.6/06.3 1012
RMK:   Slight rain continued till about 1300z. Dry but cloudy
since then with the wind easing. Max temp 8.8°, making it
the first day max below 10° this season. The 09-09z max might
just creep above 10° if the forecast temperatures for
tomorrow morning verify. The last 5 days (18th to 22nd) have
produced only 0.3 hours of sunshine while the past 4
rainfall days (to 0900z today) have produced 49.9 mm of rain.
The sunshine total for the month to date is 30.8 hours. That’s
only 50% of the average for the whole month.

RMK:   Rain has been almost continuous for the past 24 hours.
Slight for much of daytime yesterday but mod/hvy at times
since 1500z yesterday. Strongest wind yesterday was Force 6
with a max gust of 35 knots. That was in the SSE winds. When
the wind veered to SW it decreased, largely due to the
sheltering effect of the rising ground to the west. There’s
quite a bit of nuisance flooding on the local roads but I
haven’t heard of anything worse than that. All-in-all a
very typical October low pressure system.

another very dull month relative to average. With September
this year producing only 75% of the average sunshine for
the month, the first half of autumn is showing a substantial

Went to the Bakewell Show today. The showground was a real
swamp, the worst I have seen there. It must be a real
let-down for the organisers. The attendance was very poor.
Today was the first day of what is a 2-day event. Unfortunately,
the weather isn’t looking at all promising for tomorrow.

RMK:   After the brightish start this morning much of the day
turned out grey and gloomy again. Slight drizzle started
in the late morning and has continued since then, with a few
bursts of slight rain thrown in for good measure. Very mild
again with the max temp 10.0° so far. In the past 8 days
there’s been only 2.8 hours of sunshine. I’m relieved that
the very strong winds expected over the next few days will
be primarily from the west. Much of Tideswell is nestled in
a valley running N/S so a lot of the wind in a westerly goes
over the top. More exposed parts look like getting a real
battering. An interesting week.

foul day. Moderate snow continued into the early
afternoon then turned to slight sleet. To add to the
joy of the day the fog came down about an hour ago. There’s
4cm of lying snow but it’s just a horrible wet mushy mess.
It’s not very often that we don’t get out for a walk at

worth the bother of getting all togged up. Max temp +0.7°.

thaw in progress but the rate of accumulation is a bit
higher than the rate of melting. 3cm of lying snow.

started to fall and my best guess is that the rain/sleet
turned to snow between 0400 and 0500. There’s 1cm on
the ground but the falling snow at the moment is very
slight. The wind is perishing.

burst of slight rain just for variety. This afternoon the
cloud base was quite sharply defined at about 230m a.s.l.

1830z   CALM 0200 -RA FG VV/// +02.9/+02.8 1008
RMK:   Fog came down mid-afternoon. Rain started around 1630.
I drove home from Sheffield just after dark. Thick fog most
of the way. Not at all good on the roads. On the outskirts
of Sheffield earlier in the afternoon I saw one badly
damaged car, probably a casualty of the very icy roads
this morning. Max temp 2.9° so no sign of milder air
here yet.

0900z   CALM 30km 1Ci250 -00.5/-00.9 1012
RMK:   Overnight snow showers have left a slight covering on
grass, roofs and cars. Untreated hard surfaces look wet
but are actually covered in a film of clear ice which
is extremely slippery. It’s quite dangerous for walking.

RMK:   Fog lifted after 1000 and the rain ceased around 1045
after a weak cold front went through around 1015. Showery
through the afternoon and the latest one is quite heavy with
big blobs of sleet in it. Max temp 5.2° but it’s falling
steadily now.

RMK:   Fog all day, freezing till early afternoon. Quite a bit
of rime till the middle of the day. I was a little
surprised this afternoon to come across a couple of snow
drift remnants just outside the village, left over from
the snowfall on the 13th. Max temp +1.0 so far but it’s
still creeping up. It might be midwinter but the first
hints of spring are appearing. The first of the early
lambs are in the fields, the first snowdrops are in
bloom and a pair of blue tits have been checking out the
nesting box in our garden.

RMK:   There’s a thin film of rime on many surfaces but
horizontal hard surfaces are mostly dry. Yesterday was the
first 09-09z ‘ice day’ here since 2nd Feb 2015 which had a
max of -0.5°. Yesterday had the lowest 09-09z max since
-2.3° on 21st Dec 2010. In Dec 2010 there was a run of 9
consecutive ice-days from 17th till 25th.

RMK:   Very grey and hazy all day with very slight snow from
time to time but this didn’t amount to anything. Apart from
very early this morning we didn’t see any of the freezing
fog that was forecast for today. With only a relatively
light breeze it turned out to be an OK day for a walk.
Max temp -1.8°. Despite the all-day freeze, any water on
untreated hard surfaces has mostly remained liquid. Also,
the soil surface has only half-heartedly frozen a bit.
Presumably the cloud cover has prevented surfaces from
radiating to space and conduction from below has balanced
the effects of contact with the sub-zero air.

1600z   VRBL01kt 15km 1St007 8Sc015 06.3/05.4 1037
RMK:   A somewhat better day but it’s all relative. It stayed
dry after the early drizzle ceased but the sky remained
overcast and grey all day to give another sunless day. That
makes 12 sunless days so far this month. There’s still a few
remnant snow drifts along the walls outside the village but
I expect that they’ll be gone by tomorrow. Max temp 6.7.

the moon is clearly visible through the cloud. The light
NW breeze has returned. As a result, it’s a milder morning

Tideswell, Derbyshire – Tuesday 17th January 2017

time as well. Outside the village there’s still snow drift
remnants along some of the walls. Max temp 5.4° so quite a
bit cooler than yesterday.

RMK:   The leading edge of somewhat cooler air reached here
at 1720z yesterday evening as the breeze changed from a
light NW’ly to a light SSE’ly. The temperature has been
easing downwards slowly since then and it’s 3° colder at
present than it was at this time yesterday. The change hasn’t
done anything for the weather, though. It just as grotty this
morning as it was yesterday morning.

it was rain fluctuating in intensity from slight to heavy.
In the early afternoon it evolved ito drizzle which has
persisted since then. The fog came down during the past hour.
There’s still some patches of snow in the village but
they’re disappearing fast. Outside the village there’s
drifts along most of the walls. Some of these are still
close on 1 metre deep but most are less than half a metre.

sleet as the temp was below 1.5° till just before 0200z when
it jumped to 2.5° and has been rising gradually since then.
There’s still a patchy snow cover but it’s much less

broken cloud and sunny intervals. 6 cm lying snow with about
75% cover. A slow thaw resumed today. Walking around the
village was difficult this afternoon. Thick slush from
yesterday froze solid overnight and with a thin film of

Max temp 3.2

0900z   29006kt 15km -SG 5St007 7Sc015 +01.6/+00.8 1018
RMK:   A real mixed bag this morning. Slight rain and
sleet since about 0500 falling on frozen surfaces so all
untreated hard surfaces have a coating of glaze. It’s
extremely slippery out there. In the past half hour
the precipitation has changed to snow grains. There’s
7 cm of lying snow.

only a couple of hours but it was pretty severe. There’s
something like 13 cm of lying snow with drifts to around
1 metre outside the village. Some of the fields have been
blown nearly bare but there’s drifts along the walls.
There’s four ‘A’-roads in the area closed and there’ll be
a lot of difficulty on hills on the minor roads.

so far, it isn’t showing any signs of a downward trend.
Snow is starting to settle at the Cat & Fiddle (515m) and
the road is becoming snow-covered. The A6024 is closed by
drifting snow at Holm Moss (summit 524m). The A57 Snake Pass
(summit 512m) is open but very icy. As expected, the ‘high

morning onwards there were long sunny spells. Very windy
all day but it was at its peak between 0500z and 0600z.
Had a walk over much more exposed ground above the village
this afternoon. The wind was much stronger up there. We
didn’t go far as progress was very difficult. At times
it was difficult to keep standing. I reckon it was
gusting to 60-70 knots in the more exposed bits.
Max temp 5.9 but it’s on the drop now and, with the wind,
it’s getting a bit nasty out there.

just after 0500z. We are relatively sheltered in this wind
direction so I suspect that in more exposed parts it’s
likely to be up to at least gale force and quite likely
severe gale force. Not a good morning for high-sided
