Mountsorrel & Rothley Leicestershire Winter Frost Weather


Frost is a deposit of small white ice crystals formed on the ground or other surfaces when the temperature falls below freezing. For frost to form the temperature at ground level needs to be 0 °C or less. Frost can have a devastating effect on vegetation. Ice forms on the surface of plants and also freezes their internal cells. These ice crystals can expand and rupture delicate plant tissue.

Cloud cover — clouds act as a ‘blanket’ that helps prevent daytime warmth from escaping into space during the night. Clear skies mean the heat is free to escape, allowing for lower overnight temperatures.
Wind — Wind mixes the cooler air near the ground with warmer air just above it. This slows cooling at the ground.
Humidity — When there is moisture in the air, and water changes from vapour to liquid, small amounts of (latent) heat are released. This heat slows the rate of cooling.

The StromTrack weather station uses temperature probes located on grass and concreate in order to measure (frost) temperature. Frost temperature readings are recorded every second and then averaged out over 1-minute to provide a very accurate temperate reading. The Temperature sensors are of type BetaTherm 100K6A1IA Thermistor which are rated for -35° to +50°C with a tolerance of±0.2°C (over 0° to 50°C range)

UK Outlook for Saturday 30 Jan 2021 to Monday 8 Feb 2021: Unsettled conditions look likely to dominate for this period, with low pressure across the UK. Therefore, this should bring changeable weather to most of the country, with periods of rain, showers, and strong winds at times. While mild westerly and southwesterly winds are expected to be dominant for most of the period, occasional colder northerly winds are possible, bringing a chance of snowfall, likely confined to far northern parts. Towards the end of the period, we may see high pressure bringing a higher than average chance of cold weather more widely with wintry outbreaks. If this were to occur many inland and southern areas would likely see drier than average conditions, with some overnight frost and fog.
UK Outlook for Tuesday 9 Feb 2021 to Tuesday 23 Feb 2021: Confidence is low for this period, but current signals indicate a possible high pressure system around or near the UK during this period. This would likely bring cold northerly winds, producing colder than average temperatures and wintry outbreaks. The second half of February is likely to have a mixture of weather types, with periods of wet, windy, and milder weather interspersed with drier, calmer, and colder periods.

Mountsorrel is a village in Leicestershire on the River Soar, just south of Loughborough with a population of 6,662 inhabitants. A castle was built in 1080 by Hugh Lupus, but there is evidence of an earlier Norman settlement in the area in the form of pottery fragments. A Roman villa is supposed to have existed on Broad Hill during the 4th century AD, the site of today's quarry, as quarrying during the late 1800s revealed many artefacts including a preserved wooden bucket. However, the first recording of the village was in 1377, when it had a population of 156.

The Mountsorrel Weather Station is located in Mountsorrel which is just South of Loughborough andjust North of Leicester, Leicestershire.
