    His diaries reveal him to have had obsessions about food and extra-marital assignations, but Samuel Pepys was also, it appears, something of a weather watcher.

It would be stretching it to suggest that he was the sort of "weather anorak" that some contemporary diarists clearly were, but his published journals are dotted with descriptive asides which remind us that the vagaries of the weather were just as noteworthy in the seventeenth century as they are now.
