As If We Need This!

It seems a bit like overkill, given how wet London can get, but someone had the bright idea to make this…

Interactive Weather Storm

The 25ft installation is designed to mimic the furious weather of the Isle of Skye and visitors are invited to whip up a tempest of wind, rain, lightning, fog and thunder via a set of controls.

Veteran weatherman Michael Fish* said, “The idea of being able to control the weather first hand is every weatherman’s dream come true. After years of experience with the weather, for once I will be able to predict the weather with absolute certainty.”

And people went and stood in it!

* Fish is infamous for saying during a forecast on 15th October 1987: “Earlier on today, apparently, a woman rang the BBC and said she heard there was a hurricane on the way… well, if you’re watching, don’t worry, there isn’t!” That evening, the worst storm to hit South East England since 1703 caused record damage and killed 18 people.
