Nice Weather for Ducks A3 Risograph Print – by Ploterre

There are a few datasets that Becky started to revisit and look at differently. Rain data is the latest revival. As humans, we are innately drawn to searching for patterns. Weather data is full of them.

The element that drew her in this time were the specific times or days of each year where it consistently rained. When looking at data for a specific area in Glasgow for a recent project, at 9pm on the dot it seemed to rain on most days.

For total rainfall across the UK over the past 90 years, the day that most stood out was the 3rd October. For many of these 90 years, October 3rd brought significantly heavy rainfall. In fact, the heaviest total rainfall across all 90 years was 3rd October 2020.

The design itself plays on the phrase ‘nice weather for ducks’ and uses an upturned umbrella (with a ducks head for the handle) to display the daily rainfall. Each line on the umbrella represents a different year and visualises rainfall from the beginning of October to the end of February where October sits at the top. The thicker the line, the greater the rainfall.
