Sunshine recorder is a
device that records
the amount of
sunshine at a given
location.
It is measured in
hours.
Temperature is measured
in Celsius (°C) using a
thermometer.
Fahrenheit (°F) is another
scale which can be used.
The thermometer must be
shaded from direct sunlight
and should have air
circulating around it.
The thermometers can be

Wind direction is
reported by the
direction it is blowing
from, according to the
compass.
Wind speed can be
measured using an
anemometer.
The strength of the
wind is measured on
the Beaufort scale,
Knots, and Mph.
Air pressure is
measured by a
barometer.
The units used are
millibars (mb). The

High Pressure – brings good weather, clear and dry.
Low pressure – brings bad weather, cloudy and wet.

    4. 4. Briefly describe the weather in each of the following photographs:
    5. 5. Precipitation  rain in all its forms (eg snow, hail, sleet). Sunshine  how sunny or cloudy it is. Wind speed  how fast the wind is blowing. Wind direction  the direction the wind is blowing from. Air pressure  the weight of the air on the ground. TASK 1 Temperature  How hot or cold it is.

    12. 12. Sunshine recorder is a device that records the amount of sunshine at a given location. It is measured in hours.
    13. 13. Temperature is measured in Celsius (°C) using a thermometer. Fahrenheit (°F) is another scale which can be used.
    14. 14. The thermometer must be shaded from direct sunlight and should have air circulating around it. The thermometers can be placed in a Stevenson Screen.
    15. 15. Precipitation is rain in all its forms (snow, hail, sleet). It is measured using a rain gauge. The amount of the rain in millimetres (mm) can be read from the side of the container.
    16. 16. Wind direction is reported by the direction it is blowing from, according to the compass.
    17. 17. Wind speed can be measured using an anemometer. The strength of the wind is measured on the Beaufort scale, Knots, and Mph.
    18. 18. Air pressure is measured by a barometer. The units used are millibars (mb). The greater the reading, the higher the pressure (more air above you).
    19. 19. High Pressure – brings good weather, clear and dry. Low pressure – brings bad weather, cloudy and wet.
