Weather and Climate

Check out this fantastic site: http://weather.atomwide.com/  for information from a number of weather stations acrossWeather data England, the nearest being in Rotherham. It has an attractive, clear pictorial view of the temperature, pressure, humidity, rain rate, wind direction (and others), updated every minute for each station. You can also click on any of the images to get a graph of, for example, the temperature over the past 24 hours. Obviously ideal for teaching about the weather and climate in geography and science, but could also fit in other curriculum areas. See the Met Office Education site for ideas:

    Its worth being aware of http://www.sheffieldweather.co.uk/ – you could follow the link to ‘Live Data’ to see what is happening now, or go to ‘Weather Data’ and then ‘Averages’ to get history data. The station is located in Norton Lees (a bit nearer than Rotherham)
