Bablake Weather Station was first started in 1977 by Steve Jackson, a geography teacher at Bablake School, Coventry. Now head of the geography department, Steve is still head of the now well established weather centre. The beginnings of the weather station were very humble indeed; with just a maximum/minimum thermometer, an old rain gauge and a cheap barometer, the station began to record the weather for Coventry on a daily basis. Over the years the reputation of the weather station grew as more equipment was purchased. The weather station now conforms to the high standards of the Meteorlogical Office and has a number of regular subscribers, who receive data on a weekly and monthly basis.
The weather station is now completely automatic with computerised data loggers recording the weather in Coventry every second of every day. This information can now be directly accessed at school (during term-time), by the Met Office and at home, where the readings are downloaded each day in the holidays and at weekends.
