YOUR WEATHER

Overview

Planet Science Weather Labs is conducting a national weather forecast monitoring experiment for schools. You and your class can take part. The aim is to monitor and improve the accuracy and validity of high-resolution weather forecasting.

You and your class can test your skills at measuring weather conditions, working with data, and interpreting results. You can make weather measuring equipment and put it through its paces - see Test the weather forecast. Or, you can use the LGFL real time feeds to check your weather forecast. Schools around the UK have put their weather monitoring data online and you can use it - see Using online weather data. Your work could contribute to a science project at GCSE level or any stage of a school career. It will also help weather scientists at Manchester University Centre of Meteorological Sciences to assess the value of 1 kilometre resolution forecasting.

Go to Take part in Weather Labs to get involved.

When you've got you weather data, you and your school can become weather forecasters! Have a look at Be a Weather Forecaster to find out how to get your forecast on TV, on the radio, or on the internet.
