Tilshead Borehole Levels: 17th March 2017

A very odd week indeed.  As predicted last Friday, with spring well under-way, trees coming into bud, grass growing, and very little rain, the water level in the Tilshead borehole continued to fall for the first 3 days of the week.  However, the situation remains on a knife edge and the morning mists and 2mm of rain over the last 7 days were clearly enough to have something of an effect and over the last 4 days, the level has begun to increase again.

The weather forecast for the weekend suggests some rain overnight and into tomorrow.  There may be more rain on Saturday, with Sunday being drier, but still the possibility of showers.  Looking further forward, there may be a few outbreaks of rain and showers over the early part of next week.  Drier, but colder, weather seems to be on the cards for early April.
