Fair-weather golfer!

Hello, I'm Garry Nicholson, I live in the Derbyshire Dales and work as a freelance Meteorologist.


I am a member of Cavendish Golf Club in Buxton, with a playing handicap of 9, and a self-confessed fair weather golfer!!!


I operate professionally for Weather Consultancy Services and the Mountain Weather Information Service.


I have experience in forecasting for a variety of commercial interests, including farmers, hill-walkers, sports grounds, sailors, energy companies and websites. Forecast products include those in written format, verbal telephone briefings, and video-blogs.


I graduated with a Masters degree in Meteorology at the University of Birmingham in 2013.


In 2014, I became one of the first Registered Meteorologists in the UK. This accreditation scheme, operated by the Royal Meteorological Society, ensures meteorologists operate to a set of professional standards, undergo continuous professional development, and have the relevant experience and qualifications.
