Sun, snow & hosepipe bans
What a crazy few weeks of weather we have had! In one week the weather reporters have featured record breaking temperatures, hosepipe bans and now snow in many places!
The high pressure gave us plenty of sunshine and record breaking temperatures but now temperatures have returned more to what we would normally expect for the time of year.
Meanwhile, the temperature of our planet is still rising. 2010 was the hottest year across the globe. For the UK this seems to mean that wierd weather is becoming more and more normal. We have certainly seen some strange weather since starting our investigation.
BBC Horizon broadcast a program called ‘Global Weirding’, it explored the science behind why the world’s weather seems to be getting more extreme.
It will be interesteing to see what our results show this year.
I've recieved all the data now so after Easter I will be looking at the trends and discussing them with schools.
Many thanks to all the bulb buddies that have worked so hard keeping records since last November.
Enjoy the Easter Break!
