The English obsession with the weather is the stuff of legend. A place like Vindolanda can fuel it. Its very name seems climate-related. Vindolanda means something like "white lawn." This could refer to the fact that morning frosts linger on Vindolanda longer than nearby fields due to the shadow cast by Barcombe Hill to the east.

At any rate, one of the big questions diggers always ask is "what's the weather like over there?" So, as a starting (if not ending) point for an answer, WeDig proudly presents a new page on the Digger's Guide: So, How's the Weather?

On this page you will find a brief climate summary; current conditions & satellite image; charts of monthly high/low temps, rainfall levels, etc.; and even a series of live Webcams located throughout the Hadrian's Wall region so you can see for yourself what it's doing whenever you'd like.

Enjoy!

- Harry

Great stuff Harry, you must be reading my mind, I was just wondering this morning what the normal temperature I should expect in May...

Thanks for putting all that stuff together in one convenient page.

The Northumberland National Park Web site seems to have finally fixed the kinks in their 3rd Wall Web cam, streaming video from Walltown Crags. I've just added its feed to the So, How's the Weather? page of the Digger's Guide here. So, with any luck, 3 different views of "Illuminating Hadrian's Wall" this coming Saturday, 13 March!
