Hazel Farm is in Somerset and is situated on the northern aspect of the Mendip Hills overlooking the Chew Valley and less than a mile south of the village of Compton Martin. It lies at an altitude of 246 meters. The weather is recorded on a Davis Vantage Pro 2 automatic weather station. (See photo right).
The data is sent by wireless transmitter to a console and data logger. This is then uploaded to this site every 15 minutes. The equipment is well sited for most purposes though for recording the wind direction and speed it is less than ideal if the wind is from the east.
We also have a section detailing the highs and lows of our construction of a Natural Swimming Pool. Each stage of the building process is shown together with accompanying photographs. (See relevant page).
19th September 2015: A new addition is the creatively namedGENERAL, ALL SUBJECTS BLOG PAGE! I plan to use the page to record events at hazel Farm that will include weather topics, items relating to the living pond and life generally as we experience it up here on the Mendips.
In the meantime I hope that the data may be of interest to people. Please remember that this is an amateur site and whilst the data is very accurate, decisions requiring current and historical weather data should not be made using this data alone.
Also, please note that the data displayed does not use the UK meterological day of 09:00 to 09:00. Instead, it uses the American standard of midnight to midnight.
Should you require any further information on anything on the site then please get in touch using the Contact Page, and I'll get back to you.
Please click on the appropriate link to display the data: Use the back key to navigate back to this page from the pages showing the weather data.
I recognise that the data on the left hand side of the current weather conditions page is not refreshing. I have been shamed into doing something about it. Davis, the suppliers have admitted that there are problems with Windows 10 and they have promised to look into it for me. Watch this space!
