Looking at weather comparison

An idea is to download lots of sets of data to do with the weather eg. Snow, rainfall, temperature etc. comparing Cambridge to Sheffield with Sheffield numbers of snow and rainfall being higher than Cambridge as its one of the driest places showing in like a graph like format having the Cambridge graph on top of the Sheffield graph. Which may also compare the hilliness of Sheffield on the graph as its more extreme.  I want to display it in lots of different layers and not just have a normal printed out boring graph to display the data to make it more exciting and more relevant. To put the data in perspective. Something you can easily understand, instead of just lots of numbers. Showing my journey from Cambridge to Sheffield.

These are 4 maps showing different     that I got from the Met Office site. They also have lots of sets of data that I could use on there.

From just looking at these maps and the area’s that Sheffield and Cambridge are in you can already tell that there will be extreme differences.
