‘Wild Weather Week’ (13th-20th September)

It’s ‘Wild Weather Week’!

This week the BBC will be taking a closer look at the extreme climatic conditions in the UK. East Midlands Today weatherman Des Coleman will be exploring a range of climatic conditions that affect the East Midlands region. In Nottinghamshire his focus will be on flooding. Please use the links below for more details.

A few weather records from the BBC Wild Weather pages:

  • Hottest day in Nottinghamshire: 36.1 degrees C in Clarborough, 3rd August 1990.
  • Windiest day in Nottinghamshire: 82 mph in Watnall, 2nd January 1976.

BBC East Midlands Today, BBC One at 18:30 BST, will be featuring a film each evening this week, concentrating on a particular aspect of the weather. A special programme will be broadcast on Monday, 20th September, 2010 on BBC One at 7.30pm: “Weatherman Des Coleman explores the East Midlands’ wildest weather, from floods to lightning, and fog to freezing temperatures. What is the science behind our weather patterns and why do different areas experience such extremes? Des challenges three East Midlands alternative meteorologists to make an accurate long range summer forecast, the Holy Grail for forecasters everywhere.”

Details of the other eleven regionally focussed ‘Wild Weather’ documentaries can be found on the BBC One Programmes webpage.

    I saw the double rainbow too! I even took some pics but only 1 came out as the other was a bit faint. I’ll send them to you.

    Spotted a small mistake!!! At the end of your home page where you ask for any info from people I think it should say ‘If….’ before the rest of the paragraph?!

    But very good so far- liked the blog and pics :) X

    Brilliant – photo would be great, i’ll put it on my map which is ‘under development’ – search google maps for user created maps on ‘East Midlands Weather’ and my 2 amateur creations should appear!
    Thanks for the proof reading – the ‘if’ is there but insists on jumping higher up the page!
