Business Meeting - Zoom with speaker Rotarian Roger Willis on weather

MRRC Rotarian Roger Willis gave a very interesting talk on how he records the daily weather for our area.

Roger took over from Bob Poots in 2015 and his daily recordings are sent to the Met Office,the Environment Agency and the Dorset Echo who describe him as their 'Weather Statistician'.

Roger stressed the value of continuous data recording as invaluable to the Met Office for forcasting weather and described the equipment he uses with the help of some excellent photographs.
