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 10, 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 have an MSc in Applied Meteorology and Climatology and a BA (Hons) in Geography and Broadcast Media and am a Registered Meteorologist (RMet) under the accreditation scheme operated by the Royal Meteorological Society.
