A Carradale boy with the potential to be a future weather man made an appearance on national television on Tuesday evening.

A video of Kyle Gosling, aged eight, who has been taking part in meteorologist Sean Batty’s Mini Met Team project, was aired on STV News at Six.

Kyle was one of a number of eager young Mini Met Team ‘observers’ who were asked this week to observe clouds and make a weather report from their region of Scotland, a handful of which were aired on the news.

Kyle, who made a rain gauge before the Easter break as part of Sean’s challenge, reported on Tuesday that there were no clouds in the sky in Carradale and no rain in his gauge.

Kyle has regularly been uploading his findings to Sean Batty and luckily the results for his rain gauge have generally been very low. He recorded just 4mm in the first week.

Kyle’s dad Scott told the Courier: ‘Kyle is loving taking part in this project and it is something nice to keep him busy during this time. It also ties in nicely with his new school topic of weather and climate.’
