Met Office forecaster Jonathan Vautrey said: “The general theme is that the weather is volatile.

  • Climate change: IPCC says: “Now or never”

    We recycle, many want to switch to electrical energy and yet it may not be enough.

    The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) has issued a warning that we have passed the point of no return.

    They say no matter what we do, the world will still warm by 3.2 degrees this century.

    However, to further limit the warming of our beloved planet, she has set out some things we must do to ensure warming does not rise more than 1.5°C this century – we must reach net zero by mid-century.

    We’re in for a rainy week and more rain for the rest of the month.

  • It’s cold and wet and the cost of living has risen. Here are tips for saving energy!

    We’ll be enjoying a British summer soon, but until then, here are some of the best ways to save energy and stay warm.

    1. Turn off devices that are in standby mode. If you switch off the device at the socket, you can save £30.

    2. Save around £75 a year by installing a smart thermostat. It can detect the rooms in use and heat the room accordingly.

    3. Efficient devices! Don’t throw away an appliance unless you have to anyway, but if you do get a new one make sure it’s energy efficient. An A+++ fridge freezer could save you £320 over its lifetime.

    4. Wash your clothes by the age of 30. It might only save you £5 a year, but at this point you might agree that even a small amount helps!

    5. Insulate your roof. It could cost you around £135 a year in heating bills.

  • Plants do not need to be watered in this weather

    Whether you’re an avid gardener or just have a few plants outdoors, be careful not to drown your plants.

    It’s raining heavily in most areas of the UK this week – enough rainwater to keep your plants thriving throughout the month.

  • Why is it raining so much in April?

    “April showers bring forth Mayflowers,” but why is it almost guaranteed to rain in April?

    The sea temperature in Great Britain is the lowest. Coupled with the sun warming us more as the days get longer and the sun gets higher, results in warmer land temperatures.

    The clouds are forming over the warmer land, letting the rain fall on us!

    Thankfully, drier weather and the warmth of the corn are not too far away now.
