James Trickey from Cheltenham has composed a website specifically
for Gloucestershire's weather.
has numerous forecasts and other kinds of meteorological data, and
all the info is provided by the budding Michael Fish.
asked James (right) to tell us why he has such a passion for weather
forecasting, and to explain why he's created an online source of
what he said:
name is James Trickey, I am 12 years old and I am very interested
in the weather. I have been interested in the weather since I was
small and I want to be a meteorologist for a job.
set up my website so everyone can share this interest and get some
useful information out of it, too.
do the updates every day, by writing the current conditions
from my weather station.
have been building the site progressively over 2 months (since 29th
February 2005). I do the updates every day, by writing the current
conditions from my weather station, editing data from all the sites
I know, and writing my own forecasts based upon pressure and data
so it is more relevant (and accurate) towards Gloucestershire.
created my site by copying, pasting and editing forecasts from many
sites (10+) and changing the details so it was more accurate for
then decided it wasn't worth just copying and pasting, and it would
be more worthwile to add my own forecasts as well.
halo around the sun or moon often heralds rain on its way.
forecasts made by me are based on the current conditions (e.g. pressure,
temperature etc.) and by following trends, also by the identification
of cloud types and following some folklore, e.g. a halo around the
sun or moon often heralds rain on its way.
'Official Gloscheck Forecast' is the forecast written by me, and
the other forecasts are forecasts that have been edited from other
sites, but they are for quick reading.
having one county to monitor the weather for, the weather forecasts
can have more time spent on them and are therefore more accurate."
