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.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday: Feeling milder from Monday with prolonged sunny spells. Cloudier again on Tuesday with scattered showers and a risk of hail in any heavier bursts. Brighter again on Wednesday.
UK Outlook for Wednesday 14 Apr 2021 to Friday 23 Apr 2021: The most likely scenario for the start of this period is for mainly settled conditions to be in place across the country. Unsettled conditions with rain showers may spread erratically from the west through the weekend. The heaviest and most prolonged rain as well as the strongest winds, are most likely for western and north-western areas, with eastern areas likely remaining drier and brighter. Temperatures will likely remain at or slightly below average at first, before recovering to potentially slightly above average for a time over the weekend. Confidence decreases after this, however towards the end of this period it will likely be turning less unsettled with more dry and bright interludes. Generally, it is expected to feel rather warm, although temperatures could be supressed in wetter areas.

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.
