Default [OBS] Tideswell, Derbyshire - Wed 13th Jan 2021

Tideswell, Derbyshire - Wednesday 13th January 2021
---------------------------------------------------------------------

0630z CALM 3000 -FZRA 8St007 -00.1/-00.6 1018
RMK: Looks like there's been slight rain for some time
with the temp below zero. I haven't been able to get
out of the house yet this morning due to the underfoot
conditions. Everything is covered in a layer of smooth
glaze that has a film of liquid water on it. It just looks
wet but it's extremely slippery and could result in more
business for A & E Departments, as if they weren't
busy enough already. The temperature is creeping up
so the conditions may not last very much longer.

RMK: It's atrocious out there. Surfaces look wet but
untreated surfaces are actually covered in ice that's
got a film of liquid water on it. I haven't been able to
get up the path to the raingauge and the grass min
thermometer so those readings will follow later.

Hi, Norman,
Now you have to separate the frozen rain gauge funnel without pulling the bottom out of the ground, melt any frozen precipitation - snow / ice, scrape the ice from ground thermometers (find them first if there's snow), force the frozen screen door open, scrape ice from the sunshine recorder and start doing the obs. Don't we just love the cold.
Cold, ice and snow are hard work!
Ken

Hi Ken,

Indeed, but I'll have to wait until the rather steep path up the garden is
navigable. By the way, you forgot the frozen anemometer. Apart from a solitary
gust to 2 knots it has been showing flat calm with no change in direction for
the past 7 hours. I know that there isn't much wind around this morning but I
find it hard to believe that we've had 7 hours of flat calm. That just doesn't
happen here.

Lol! Just leave it alone, Norman, there have to be limits. Defrosting the mast and anemo are steps too far!!

1600z CALM 0400 RA FG 8St002 +02.6/+02.1 1017
RMK: Slight to moderate rain all day with occasional
brief bursts of heavy. Underfoot conditions started
to improve soon after 0900z and most of the ice had
gone by 1100z. There's been fog from time to time in the
afternoon. Max temp +2.7C and there's been no sunshine.
All told, a grim day.
