Welcome to Porlock Weather Station. Presented here are the current weather conditions at this popular Exmoor village in Somerset, UK. Situated within 1/2 a mile of the coast it nestles in a natural sheltered bowl-like position. There is shelter from the prevailing south-west winds with the added effect of the warm Bristol Channel waters. Really hard frosts are quite a rarity in winter due to the warming effect of the sea. Equally the cooling effect of onshore breezes in summer means more comfortable conditions when it can be oppressively humid elsewhere.

The weather station in use is the Davis Vantage Pro 2 Plus, with solar radiation and UV sensors. These pages are updated every 10 minutes, and realtime data every 5 seconds. The meteorological day used at this station ends at midnight. The data collected is shared with the UK Meteorological Office, US NOAA, Universities and others around the world to assist with their weather modelling and forecasting.

Forecast for the next 6 to 12 hours: Fairly fine, showery later
