Garry’s latest FOREcast

General situation: A very hot continental airmass currently over the British Isles will give way to much less hot, but still warm and fairly humid air over the next few days. Weather systems will become slow-moving, so confidence in the forecast is rather low. Whilst there will be periods of rain for the Peak District, […]

Garry’s latest FOREcast

Showery Saturday; becoming hot and thundery The week ahead presents a mixture of ‘high summer’ weather, with building heat then scope for thunderstorms. In the short term, the weekend starts with rain on and off during Saturday morning and middle of the day, with possible heavy bursts for a time. These showers will generally clear east across […]

The weather did clear up in the afternoon […]

Captain’s Away Weekend

Last weekend was the Captain’s Away Weekend at Forest of Arden and it allowed some of the Cavendish members a very good weekend of golf, weather and socialising. Maybe a little too much of the latter! We saw some great golf, especially from Aaron Woodward, who won the singles, closely followed by Rob Lee and […]

Garry’s latest FOREcast

Dull start to Captain’s Day It’s been a decent week of weather, with dry weather prevailing so far in July. In general, the ongoing forecast is pretty good too, with a good deal of dry weather around. However, there will be some patchy rain and drizzle on Saturday morning, and low cloud across the Peak District […]
