Calling all weather enthusiasts!
If you’ve been inside for days amid the COVID-19 outbreak, you may catch yourself feeling a little bored. While people around the globe continue to practice physical distancing, the one thing that will always remain active is the weather. Luckily, you don’t have to go far to produce your own weather report. That’s why we’re challenging YOU to share your ‘backyard weather’ with us!
The steps are simple:
- Log on to the weathernetwork.com, or open up The Weather Network app on your phone to check out the weather forecast for your area.
- Record a video of you or your family member reporting on the weather from the comfort of your backyard.
- Post on social media using the hashtag #BackyardWeather and tag us @weathernetwork.
- Tag your friends and encourage them to do the same!
Here are a few examples from submissions we’ve already received:
