The Challenge: Predict the Weather

Weather logHow should the measurements be recorded?

You should make measurements from each of your weather instruments in your weather station at least once a day and record them in a logbook. Keep an orderly chart, and if you plot the results on a graph as you go along it will be easier to notice patterns in your weather data. You should also make a note of observations such as the sky's color, cloud cover etc.

As you start to build up months and years of observations and measurements you will be able to start to make predictions about the weather that are much better than guesses.
