Handy Weather Clock Radio with Graphical Symbols

Philips AJ260/05 - Weather Clock Radio
"This clock/radio is amazing. It looks great & the time is radio-controlled so is always right. The outdoor temperature is useful & the weather forecast is surprisingly accurate. The radio sound is quite good and the display is big and bright but we had to put a piece of wood under it to make it stand upright - at an angle we could not read it in bed. The price at Amazon is good too [...]", Frodie, UK, 4 stars

Things to do on rainy days

Rainy days are fun days. There are so many things to do. Tidy your room - if you don't like that - play games on the computer. How about building a play-house out of sheets and a table. Start a big puzzle. Play with a train-set or scalextric racing car set or play Lego on a playmat. You could be brave and get out your wellies and go for a splash in the rain. Use your raincoats and hang your wellies on wellie stands and your rain jacket on a coat stand when you get back. If you live in London you can visit the London Science Museum, or you can access their online weather prediction pages in their environment section and learn more about weather.

Weather products

There are many fun gadgets that can make weather fun. Build your own weather gauge instruments such as Anemometer (wind speed meter). All you need is a box with two ends cut off and a piece of stiff paper to block the wind. A semi-circular slit down the side of the box next to the stiff paper indicates how fast the wind is blowing.
