© University of Reading and Royal Meteorological Society

This marks the end of the second week of the course, we hope that you have enjoyed it and found it interesting so far.

Hopefully, by the end of this week you should feel that you are happier:

  • describing the weather features associated with depressions, anticyclones and the four main air masses which affect the UK.
  • investigating local weather conditions using readily available instruments.

Use the comments area below to discuss your current weather in terms of what you have learned this week.

We’ve provided a comprehensive list of online teaching resources to accompany each week, which you may find useful- particularly if you are a teacher. You can download this here.

Next week, we’ll look at the bigger picture – the factors which control the Earth’s climate, as well as the motion of the atmosphere and oceans. We’ll also focus in on some of the processes operating specifically in the Tropics.
