Welcome to the foot of the Mendip Hills in Somerset, England.

The weather station in use is the Davis Vantage Pro 2 Plus fitted with a Daytime Fan-Aspirated Radiation Shield (D-FARS) kit; these pages are updated every 30 minutes; for more up to date readings you can view the gauges in realtime, updated every few seconds. The meteorological day used at this station ends at midnight. The instruments are regularly calibrated and although this is an amateur station I try to make it as accurate as possible!

You can also follow @cheddarweather on Twitter. Air temperature, UV index, wind speed & direction, rainfall and a forecast are also updated periodically or pop across to the UK Met Office Weather Observation Website (WOW!)

The current weather forecast is "Fairly fine, showery later" so if you are visiting then enjoy our wonderful county, especially the local cider!

Regards Andy
