Rosliston is a small village in South Derbyshire, near the borders of Leicestershire and Staffordshire. It is situated about 4-5 miles south of Burton-on-Trent and Swadlincote, in the heart of the National Forest. Its altitude is around 85 metres above sea level.
I run a private weather station which records daily climatic data: temperature, rainfall, humidity, dewpoint, air pressure, wind speed and direction, sunshine, cloud cover, and ground/soil temperatures. This data is reported monthly, and some of it daily, to numerous organisations, including the Climatological Observers Link, East Midlands Weather Front and on occasions of special interest, BBC Midlands Today.
I have been fascinated with the weather for many years - in Britain many people complain about the weather, yet we probably have some of the most interesting and variable conditions in the world. No two days are the same! Extreme events are of particular interest, and with global warming very much in the news these days, there is always a demand for climatic data: has it been warmer than average? Has it been a wet month? Are the warming trends we hear about real?
