Nestling at the northern most tip of the Bay Normand-Breton, exposed to the Atlantic Ocean to the west and suffering the winds funnelling down the English Channel, Alderney, like all islands, is very much aware of its weather.

Our dedicated weather guru is Grant Le Marchant (AWT Director).

This, along with resources such as the Jersey Meterological Office, makes the lives of all of us at the Alderney Wildlife Trust that little bit easier.

Looking at my crystal ball towards the weekend, things are going to get fairly unsettled, especially on Saturday when we can expect gales or even storm force winds as an especially vigorous area of low pressure passes close by to us.
