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 Thursday 18 Jul 2024 to Saturday 27 Jul 2024: The period is likely to start off with a fairly wet and potentially windy spell across the northwest of the UK, whilst southern areas are more likely to stay dry, or become dry following early rain. Some brief warmer weather possible here. Through the weekend and beyond, confidence remains relatively low but the most likely outcome is for further weather systems to move across the country from the west, with northern and western areas typically wettest and a greater chance of dry conditions prevailing in the southeast. There is, however, a smaller chance for either unsettled weather to be more widely prevalent, or for a more quiescent period to develop across the south. Overall, temperatures will likely be near normal, but may feel cool in the west at times.
UK Outlook for Sunday 28 Jul 2024 to Sunday 11 Aug 2024: Through this period, there is a slightly increased chance of more settled spells of weather developing at times, particularly in the south. However, there is still a substantial chance of other outcomes too, with more changeable periods also likely. Overall drier than average conditions are more likely than wetter than average. Temperatures are expected to vary through the period, but overall, warm is slightly favoured over cool,

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.
