Welcome to The Weather Game!
- Compete with your friends/colleagues/arch-enemies.
- Play to win prizes, bragging rights or just for fun.
- Determine which group has the best forecasters: Undergrads, Postgrads or Staff.
The Weather Game is currently closed.
We will return in Autumn Term 2019!
The Weather Game exists to give you the opportunity to test out your weather forecasting skills! No previous experience in weather forecasting is necessary, but it probably wouldn't hurt to spend a few minutes checking the forecast charts before making your prediction.|
If you're brand new to The Weather Game, you might want to start by reading the General Instructions to get a feel for how to play the game. Once you're done there, you can go ahead and register your pseudonym. Pseudonyms add not only anonymity, but also a bit of humour to the game. Try to make yours something inventive and witty, but not offensive, and potentially win a prize for your efforts.
Once you've registered your pseudonym, you should submit an entry for the current week's competition. Your entry must be received by Friday at 1900 (local time). If you make a mistake in your entry, you can always submit another as the system will only score your most recent entry, provided the entry was made before the deadline.
Entries are scored during the following week. You can view the League Table to see where you stand, or see a detailed breakdown of your score for each week. Note that you can only see the latter feature for your own account.
If you have any questions, you can e-mail Simon Lee, who currently runs The Weather Game.
