About Peak Weather

This web site existed in the guise of Weatherstat in the early 21st century and ran for many years providing up to date weather statistics for the High Peak and Peak District. Back then it was hosted purely on a platform of PHP \ MySQL and Apache web server.

This latest site hosts a forecasting service for the whole of the UK and the weather system is recording local weather statistics every 5 minutes.
The Peak Weather system platform is based on Microsoft technologies, e.g. SQL Server, Reporting and Integration services - although the actual presentation layer, i.e. the web site is hosted on an open source platform - PHP\HTML\CSS\Javascript.


There is an archive section on the site where there are statistics from the previous web site - presented for viewing and using as a comparison to see if there is any sign of global warming in Chapel, 15 years on. Not that this length of time is long enough to measure Climate Change considering our planet has only warmed by 0.9 °C in the last 160 years!
