We had over a hundred weather poem tweets in our competition to win a limited edition Met Office blue sky umbrella on Twitter. We couldn’t retweet them all so here’s some more of our favourites.
From @CMDexe Is it wet, is it dry, are there clouds up in the sky? To see what’s ahead we check the past & thus is born the weather forecast.
From @tobleroni45 Tonight for the first time, just about half past ten, for the first time in history, I’m gonna watch weathermen! #rainraingoaway
From @gaiacaecilia One wonders whether the british weather could ever get any wetter for british weather seems forever wetter than any other weather
From @andrew_spires Is the rain going to fall? I can’t tell, I’m a novice. So I log onto Twitter and follow @metoffice #weatherpoem
Some more of our favourites:
From @Mookii Blue sky, bright sky, dark clouds too, the MET office provides the forecast for you. You’re a tweet away, for the weather today!
From @realityminus3 The troposphere’s grand incarnation: A cumulonimbus occasion! Tornadoes and lightning with squall lines most frightening; The awesomest manifestation!!

From @alanhousden If sky is red when you awake/ An umbrella you should take/ If horizon’s red at night/ Chances are it’ll be alright.

From @ptallan10 lazing under a clear blue sky, high above I hear a skylark cry, then I wake up from a dream, no escape from the uk jetstream!
