Some readers may be aware that I took part in the “The Great British Weather Experiment” during the period 13 September 2010 to the 13 October 2010.
The experiment was organised by the Weather club which is a part of the Royal Meteorological Society. In total 267 participants recorded and posted over 2,000 observations.
Observations came from as far north as Orkney, as far south as Jersey, as far west as the Isle of Barra and as far east as Margate.
Highlights of the observations (as recorded by the Weather Club) were :-
I made observations for uplift to the site once per day and these were also recorded on Twitter (@WS7weather) and via this website. Amongst the observations I made during this period were:-
- A low of 5.2c at 07:48 on the 25 September 2010
- 21mm of rain on the 1 October 2010 and 17mm of rain of the 3 October 2010
- A temperature of 16.2c at 06:30 hours on the 14 September 2010
It is planned for further experiments to take place in the near future and members are already looking forward to the announcement.
