The week ahead
This indicative forecast is provided by Dark Sky and cannot always take into account Petersfield’s unique microclimate.
Our local weather is unique
Nestling in the South Downs, Petersfield has its own very special microclimate.
We measure almost twice the rainfall of Portsmouth yet are protected against the cooler onshore breezes in summer.
That’s why you need a forecaster like Richard Marks who has an instinctive understanding of our local conditions and an archive of weather observations and measurements that goes back decades.
A resident of Buriton and a keen meteorologist who boasts an archive of Petersfield weather records stretching back more than fifty years.
Beyond his weather observations, Richard also watches community theatre and enjoys good food, great wine and life as a father and grandfather.
