Weather Watchers

BBC - Royal Meteorological Society Initiative

The BBC together with the Royal Met Soc have developed a crowd-sourcing system to enable interested members of the public to submit weather data and photographs, which may be used on the TV or local radio.

There is a resource pack for anyone interested in setting up their own weather station and sending data to the BBC.

You can download it here.
