Grass Growing Weather at Mountsorrel and Rothley

Growing grass

Two of the main requirements for grass growth are temperature and moisture. By using these two parameters I have put together a simple algorithm that show when condition were good for grass growth. Moisture falls as rain or form as dew this is positive moisture return. Evapotranspiration is the sum of evaporation and plant transpiration and is deemed as water loss from the ground.

The night/day average temperature is greater than 6°c.

The balance of water remaining in the ground is greater than 3mm over a 5 day period.

UK Outlook for Monday 17 Aug 2020 to Wednesday 26 Aug 2020: The beginning of the period should see settled conditions persisting with cloudy and humid conditions interspersed with sunny spells. Some light rain may spread north-westwards at times towards the middle of August. Southern and southeastern areas may see further periods of hot weather and thunderstorms at times throughout the period. Elsewhere it is likely to remain warm or very warm though cooler than last week. Fog patches are possible overnight for many which should readily clear during the mornings. Northwestern areas may see more changeable conditions developing towards the end of the period with a mixture of windier and wetter days mingled with drier days. Eastern and northeastern areas are likely to remain more settled throughout.

However, eastern areas will see the best of more settled weather with lighter winds and drier days. There is a possibility that some southern regions will turn very warm with thunderstorms at times.

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.
