The Whatever the Weather Puzzle

It's topical... in fact, when isn't discussing the weather!

To solve this puzzle, you need to look at our selection of ‘extreme weather photos’ and then complete the sentence or statement that accompanies each picture; just like an ‘I-Spy with my little eye...’!

Each clue has one or more shaded letter boxes which then need to be transferred over to the Answer Grid. You will then be able to decipher our secret message and work out the final answer!

Step 1

Fill in the missing letters for the following six photo clues.

We have given you an example to get you started. On the below image the clue could be 'Two   B_ _ _   H _ _ _  B _ _ _ _"

Any ideas? 

The answer can be seen below....

The answer would be 'Two Blue Hair Bands'!

Step 2

Once you have found and completed all of the sentences, transfer the shaded letters from all of your answers to their respective place in the main Answer Grid. It is important that you put the right letter in its correct place, shown by the number below each letter.

Step 3

To reveal the Secret Message, take each set of 5 letters in the Answer Grid and write them downwards in a column in the Code Box. Do that with all the letters and you should have a grid of 5 x 5. Then read across this grid and the secret message will be revealed.

Now, let's get started!
All of the images can be seen below along with the individual clue answer grids, the main Answer Grid and the Code Box. To make it easy for you to record your answers though, we have a downloadable document for you to print out and write on - the images are still best viewed on screen however, (especially if you want to save your printer ink!).

Two easy ones to get you going, then it gets a bit tougher!
