Weather Alerts and Forecast

Gosport Weather operates a free e-mail mailing list service for delivering weather warnings, reports and forecasts!

We send out a variety of regular weather reports as detailed below:

Weather Forecast e-mails are sent at 19:45 each day.

Weather warning e-mails are sent as and when the weather has reached or exceeded the thresholds detailed below.

To register for this service please visit our Mailing List Info Page.

How does the warning service work? The thresholds within the Weather Display software are set by Gosport Weather and if any of these are exceeded then an e-mail is automatically sent to our mailing lists.

These warnings and alerts are for actual weather events that have already happened, they are not a replacement for the advanced warning service from the UK Met Office!! Gosport Weather will continue to use UK Met Office data to display advanced warnings on our homepage and flyer.

The alarm thresholds are as follows:

Maximum rain in 10 minutes = 10 mm = 1 cm

Maximum rain in 1 hour = 10 mm = 1 cm

Maximum rain in 6 hours = 20 mm = 2 cm

Maximum mean wind speed = 31.1 mph = Force 7 (Near Gale)

Minimum outside temperature = -5C

Maximum outside temperature = 27C

Temperature change in last hour = +/- 10C

Pressure change in last hour = +/- 10 hPa

Maximum heat index = 32C

Maximum Barometer = 1080 hPa

Minimum Barometer = 980 hPa

Gosport Weather also uses the frost prediction alarm.

The alarm will be triggered if:

Time of day is between 9pm and 9am (overnight)

Dew point is less than 3C

Air temperature is 6C or less

Temperature has dropped more than 1C in the last hour

Average wind speed has been 2 knots or less for the last hour

Please note that we have no control over the frequency of alarms, it is purely down to the weather.
