Petersfield weather

Our local weather is unique

Nestling in the South Downs, Petersfield experiences its own very special microclimate.

We measure almost twice the rainfall Portsmouth receives yet are protected against the cooler onshore breezes in summer.

That’s why you need a forecaster like Richard Marks who truly understands the cycle of effects Petersfield encounters and can draw on a personal data archive that goes back decades.
