After two weeks of falling water levels in the Tilshead Borehole we have had a sudden upturn in the last 48 hours. This is almost certainly due to the snow melt that has taken place over the last week on top of the rain from the week before.
As we go in to the last week of the annual monitoring round, we expect the levels to continue rising for a day or two more, then fall away at an increasing rate. We are expecting some rain or drizzle over the weekend and into the early part of next week. The weather is expected to turn colder again, but any snow showers should be confined to the north of the country. More wet weather is predicted for April.
