Measuring Rainfall and Humidity in England

This week we experienced lots of different weather in Wallsend. The week began quite miserable with heavy rainfall and high humidity, perfect for our measurements!  It was too wet to go outside and read the measurements so we had to quickly dash out and bring our measuring devices indoors.

The next day the rain came in light showers and then the sun came out. It was still very humid. Wednesday was a very sunny, warm, humid day with no rainfall. We enjoyed playing out all day!

On Thursday and Friday we experienced more rain but it was not as humid as it had been earlier in the week. The rain came early on in the day and it dried up by mid afternoon.

Although we had finished recording the rainfall and humidity for the week, we were shocked on Saturday when we woke up to Thunder and Lightning storms, heavy rain and then hail stone showers, in May!
