Position: 50° 55.24’N 1° 23.17’W      Post Code: SO17 2HS

Important Warning: “St Denys Weather” is provided as general interest information on the weather experienced on a jetty near the Priory Road public hard. It is hoped that the data shown are current and of reasonable quality but they should not be used for making weather related decisions. In particular the wind strength on the river varies greatly from place to place depending on the wind direction and the proximity of buildings etc. Do not rely on the anemometer readings to estimate wind strength elsewhere on the river!
