How about an Easter holiday weather project?

The Easter holidays are in full swing for many schools across the Meridian region but with a changeable week on the cards you may be looking for some rainy-day inspiration.

If you’re living with a budding weather forecaster then how about making your own weather station at home?

The Met Office has simple guides for making a rain gauge, a wind vane and a thermometer box and you can find all the information you need here:

Once you’ve got your weather station set up it’s time to start a daily diary to record your results. Try to take the measurements at roughly the same time each day.

If you have a go then let us know by sending your pictures to We always love hearing from you and it’d be great to show off some of your efforts on the programme!
