What will the weather be like today?
Weather forecasts use data in order to make predictions.
How reliable do you think this data is?
Build this Weathercaster.
Let's see how good it is at predicting todays' weather!
If you have enough time, build your own design.
Check the conditions. Is it sunny?
Set the location to your city and see what happens if it’s sunny.
What’s the forecast for the next 5 hours?
Create a program that will make the Weathercaster describe the weather conditions for the next 5 hours.
Record the Weathercaster’s predictions in a table.
Check the forecast in other cities.
Record the forecast for at least 2 other cities.
During the next 5 hours, record the actual weather conditions (in your table) and compare the forecast data with the actual data.
How did you do?
Take a moment to evaluate yourself.
Congratulations… you’ve just life hacked the weather forecast!
